Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, 26 but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from faith— 27 to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.
O Lord, by Your Word You have revealed the mystery hidden for ages—that Jesus came to live and die and live again, not only in heaven but also in our hearts. By Your Word You are calling us to bear witness to that fact so that all peoples in all nations might believe in Him and obey Him. Use our lives Lord. Fulfill in us Your call—to live the gospel humbly in our lives and to speak it boldly with our mouths, until every heart has heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.
1 Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.
Thank You, Father, for the gift of people. Thank You for teaching us how to live with one another. Now please help us to put Your teaching into practice so that we might live a life worthy of the calling we have received. Help us to serve one another in love, for “the entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Teach us to love one another as Christ loved the church and gave His life for our sakes.
