(Romans 15: 1-7)

In Christ our Savior we are free

And discerning need always to be

For the sake of others.

 

Judging seems the easy part

But it is freedom from the heart

With which we nurture brothers.

 

God tells what not to enter in

It is simply what He says is sin

The rest may be disputed.

 

We can agree to disagree

Then leave for authority

To approve or refute it.

 

If words are an affront to us

Jesus takes the brunt for us

They fall on Him.  They are His cup.

 

Willingly appease the weak

Don’t please yourself as you speak

Not tearing down, but building up.

 

Help see and hear and bear the load

Of those who walk the Christian road

Look to the One above.

 

The Scriptures show endurance and

We need no more assurance than

God’s love.

 

He freely passes hope to us

So in a common mind and voice

Acknowledge and praise the Three in One: Holy

 

Father

Spirit

Son.
