New Testament in a Year - August 15

FFC - NTIAY - Acts (1080 × 700 px)

Join me in reading through the New Testament this year. Each day features a small passage of scripture, one over which you can meditate and pray whenever most convenient for you.

Today's reading is Romans 15:1-13.

1 Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each one of us please his neighbor for that which is good, to be building him up. 3 For even Christ didn’t please himself. But, as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.”Psalm 69:9 4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that through perseverance and through encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 Now the God of perseverance and of encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, 6 that with one accord you may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7 Therefore accept one another, even as Christ also accepted you,[a] to the glory of God. 8 Now I say that Christ has been made a servant of the circumcision for the truth of God, that he might confirm the promises given to the fathers, 9 and that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written,

“Therefore I will give praise to you among the Gentiles
and sing to your name.”2 Samuel 22:50; Psalm 18:49
10 Again he says,

“Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.”Deuteronomy 32:43
11 Again,

“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles!
Let all the peoples praise him.”Psalm 117:1
12 Again, Isaiah says,

“There will be the root of Jesse,
he who arises to rule over the Gentiles;
in him the Gentiles will hope.”Isaiah 11:10
13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit.


15:7 TR reads “us” instead of “you”
