  1. v.5 in the Message: May our dependably steady and warmly personal God develop maturity in you so that you get along with each other as well as Jesus gets along with us all.

    I love the phrase our “warmly personal God”, it sounds so very intimate.

    RO 15:1 “Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves.”

    i’m quite sure the spirit had me in mind when he wrote this verse. it is a verse i desperately need to keep me in balance and keep me from flying into fleshly rages when people would seek to hinder my freedom.

    reminding myself of this helps bring peace in my spirit.

    and since it has been an ongoing theme in my studies, i am encouraged to find this sort of message in the scriptures yet again:
    RO 15:21 but as it is written,
    “THEY WHO HAD NO NEWS OF HIM SHALL SEE,
    AND THEY WHO HAVE NOT HEARD SHALL UNDERSTAND.”

  5. v.24 I plan to do so when I go to Spain.

    No one seems to know if Paul ever made it to Spain. I'd like to think he did.

  7. v.16 He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

    We are an offering acceptable to God because we are sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

  9. v.1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.

    v.2-3 Each of us should please our neighbors for their good…For even Christ did not please himself…

    Pleasing ourselves is so ingrained. We assume what pleases us, pleases others, so we barely even realize when we are pleasing ourselves.

  11. v.1-2 (From the Message): “Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, ‘How can I help?’”

    Strength is for service. Those who are strong are to take the initiative and serve others (the weak).

  13. v.10 Again, it says, “Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.”

    God always intended to include the Gentiles.

  14. v.10 Again, it says, “Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.”

    God always intended to include the Gentiles.

  15. v.20-21 It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. Rather, as it is written: “Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.”

    Here we have Paul’s personal mission statement. He knew that this was the task that God had given him and presumably confirmed with this Scripture.

  17. v.30 I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.

    Prayer is another way of showing love.

  19. v.16 He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

    Mission is seen as a priestly duty.
