Glorifying God
  • The one thing human will not do (1:21)
  • We Glorify God:
    • By living in Kingdom “Shalom” [Wellbeing]
    • By taking kingdom “Shalom” into the world
  • God’s glory is revealed in:
    • Our lifestyles (not covered here)
    • The way we relate to each other
1 bear with the weak
1. Bear with the “Weak”
  • It is an obligation, a debt (13:8)
    • The debt of love
  • In “disputable matters”
    • The strong should be patient and gentle
    • Not “pleasing ourselves” (v 1)
    • But “Pleasing our neighbour” (v 2)
      • For their GOOD
      • To BUILD them UP
    • The purpose of our relationships: EDIFICATION
      • Like Jesus (v 3)
1 bear with the weak1
1. Bear with the “Weak” . . .
  • Jesus did not please himself. Nor should we !
  • Prayer (v 5-6):
    • The encouragement and endurance to be like Jesus
    • Putting others, and their wellbeing, before ourselves
  • When we do this we bring glory to God (Jn 13:35)
2 accept welcome one another
2. Accept / Welcome One Another
  • Paul reiterates his command from 14:1
  • Accept = Welcome (loving & joyful)
    • Just as Christ accepted us
  • The weak do not know that they are weak !
    • Could be self-righteous, irritating, obnoxious, ...
    • Could be hyper sensitive, manipulative, take offense ...
    • Very much like ME !!!
  • Need to grow and learn and be transformed !!!
2 accept welcome one another1
2. Accept / Welcome One Another . . .
  • Fall on a continuum
    • Some are young and immature
    • Others are old and wise and full of grace
    • Most of us somewhere in-between
  • We live like servants just as Jesus did (v 8)
3 word spirit
3. Word & Spirit
  • Jesus lived according to what was written (v 3) - so do we !!!
  • WORD: Source of two essentials of our walk:
    • Endurance (perseverance)
    • Encouragement (comfort)
    • Faithfulness when the going gets tough (Mt 7:13-14)
    • Source of comfort and encouragement
  • The Word of God is SOUL FOOD !!!
    • Our source of Hope
3 word spirit1
3. Word & Spirit . . .
  • Word is made active by the Power of the SPIRIT !
  • In the SPIRIT we overflow with hope, joy, peace (v 13).
    • Living our lives in “Attentive Intimacy” (12:9-21)
    • Not just a list of do’s and dont’s
    • Cannot reduce our relationship to God to laws (ch 7)

WORD: Guides and Encourages

SPIRIT: Empowers, fills us with joy and peace
