In this important and relevant message for today Pastor and teacher Jason Powell, continues our journey in the book of Romans. Did you know the Bible calls us all a family? We are all brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, Paul likens us all to a body, and we all function as different parts of that body, but in the end, we make up a whole. Love means that stronger believers should bear with weaker ones. In any case, all believers don’t live to please themselves—we follow Christ’s example. Paul urges the stronger (that is, more mature), Christian, to be considerate and supportive in helping the weaker one.
