Wednesday – Romans 12:14-16
In the footnotes of my study Bible under this passage, I have found a unique statement: “Identification with others in their joys and in their sorrows is a Christian’s privilege and responsibility.” Wow! In applying this principle to fellowship within our community, it becomes very apparent that true fellowship requires less conceit and more compassion. God’s Word calls us to take on the burdens of others. His truth calls us to put aside personal jealousy and sincerely celebrate with those in our community. Human nature finds us harboring feelings that don’t support the nature of the Spirit. Pray today that God will show you where you have allowed selfish feelings and motives to creep in and restrict true fellowship. Make every effort to have compassion on all our community, and “rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” Once we make strides in this area, we will learn what it looks like to “live in harmony with one another.”
