More Than Bread Devotional for 5/20/08

Romans 15:5-7
5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

Sometimes I think I get a little too preachy. There are probably a few of you reading this who are now saying AMEN! : ) I have gotten better over the years at letting things go and not arguing over every little thing I disagree with(just ask someone who has know me for a long time), but some days that is hard. But Paul makes it clear here that unity comes from a encouragement and endurance. We don't always agree with everyone, but if we can agree that all the glory and praise belongs to God our Father and Jesus Christ; we have a good starting point. As we follow Jesus and accept those who are trying to do the same with grace, we bring praise to God.
