Christ died for you and for your neighbor, therefore bear with one another and treat each other with understanding.

Scripture: Romans 15:1-7

ESV Text: Romans 15:1-7


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 15

     1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. 3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. 4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

     5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: 6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

     7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.(KJV)

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Thee will I love, my Strength, my Tower; 
Thee will I love, my Hope, my Joy; 
Thee will I love with all my power, 
With ardor time shall ne’er destroy. 
Thee will I love, O Light Divine, 
So long as life is mine. 

2. Thee will I love, my Life, my Savior, 
Who art my best and truest Friend; 
Thee will I love and praise forever, 
For never shall Thy kindness end; 
Thee will I love with all my heart, 
Thou my Redeemer art. 

3. I thank Thee, Jesus, Sun from heaven, 
Whose radiance hath bro’t light to me; 
I thank Thee, who hast richly given 
All that could make me glad and free; 
I thank Thee that my soul is healed 
By what Thy lips revealed. 

4. Oh, keep me watchful, then, and humble 
And suffer me no more to stray; 
Uphold me when my feet would stumble, 
Nor let me loiter by the way. 
Fill all my nature with Thy light, 
O Radiance strong and bright! 

5. Oh, teach me, Lord, to love Thee truly 
With soul and body, head and heart, 
And grant me grace that I may duly 
Practice fore’er love’s sacred art. 
Grant that my every thought may be 
Directed e’er to Thee. 

6. Thee will I love, my Crown of gladness; 
Thee will I love, my God and Lord, 
Amid the darkest depths of sadness, 
Not for the hope of high reward– 
For Thine own sake, O Light Divine, 
So long as life is mine.
