The Word of God: Romans 15:5-13 – November 24, 2019

5May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus, 6so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. 8For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the circumcised on behalf of the truth of God in order that he might confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, 9and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, 
     “Therefore I will confess you among the Gentiles, 
          and sing praises to your name”; 
10and again he says, 
     “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people”; 
11and again, 
     “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, 
          and let all the peoples praise him”; 
12and again Isaiah says, 
     “The root of Jesse shall come, 
          the one who rises to rule the Gentiles; 
     in him the Gentiles shall hope.” 
13May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
