Romans 12:15 – Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
This text given here today is not an option, but a command to do something.
As Christians, we must learn to rejoice and weep with others for our scripture declares on today that we are to rejoice with those that rejoice and weep with those that weep.
Believe it or not, many so called Christians have not grasp that concept. We that are of the household of faith, if no one else, should be moved with love and compassion in doing just that:rejoice with those that rejoice and weep with those that weep.
It is time to remove God from our lips and allow Him to sit on the throne of our hearts. Let’s listen to Matthew 15:8 – “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
Sad to say, but this type of behavior is prevalent today, even among us who confess to be Christians.
Isaiah 29:13 – Then the Lord said: “Because these people draw near with their mouths and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, worship of me has become merely like rules taught by human beings.
What hurts our brothers and sisters should hurt us. What causes them to rejoice should cause us to rejoice. Where do you stand on this issue today? When others rejoice do you rejoice? When others weep do you weep? Are you having difficulty rejoicing with others? Is it because you feel they have received something you really deserved and did not get yet? Scripture declares that God is no respector of persons.
As believers, we should be the first to rejoice with those who rejoice, especially if those who are rejoicing are our brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Let us encourage one another and be grateful for each of our unique gifts and blessings.
Saints, we have work to do, especially us “Women” of the household of faith. Scripture declares that we are one body in Christ Jesus. Sometimes, our actions shows the opposite. At times, our actions appears to show all of the body parts separated from one another on their own.
Romans 12:4-6 – Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, 5 so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. 6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.
LOVE IN ACTION: ROMANS 12:7-10
If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.9 Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. 10 Love each other with genuine affection,[a] and take delight in honoring each other.
As we venture out on today, let us show the love to others that Christ daily shows to us.
Let us learn through the Word of God how to rejoice when others rejoice and how to weep when others weep.
The bible is full of examples just in case you need a place to start learning how to rejoice when others rejoice and how to weep when others weep.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for His unwavering truth that is found in His Word.
I love you all with the love of Christ.
