THE GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE
THE GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE STUDY ON THE GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE MEANING WITH THE GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE MESSAGE
Welcome back to Daily Bread! In our study today, Paul goes a step
further in his instruction about not judging other believers, and encourages
us to be selfless and hospitable, further urging us to put others above
ourselves. Remember, the Golden Rule wasn't something that the public school
It came from Jesus. (But don't tell them that, they'll
JESUS GAVE US THE GOLDEN RULE
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to
you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to
We that are strong ought to bear the burdens of the weak,
and not please only ourselves.
Let every one of us please his neighbor for his good to build him up.
For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written:
The reproaches of them that reproached thee
fell on me.
Remember that whatever things were written formerly,
were written for our learning, so that we,
through patience and the comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be likeminded
(of the same habit of thought)
one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God,
the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So receive one another,
as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister in Israel for the TRUTH of God,
to confirm the promises made to the fathers:
and so that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy; as it is written,
Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen
(Gentiles), and sing praises unto thy name.
GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE LESSON WITH THE GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE
And again he said, Rejoice, ye Gentiles,
with His people.
O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
And again, Isaiah said,
And there shall come forth a
rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots ...
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy
and peace in believing,
that you may abound in hope, through the
power of the
This is the second time now in this letter that Paul has referred to hope
and the Holy Ghost in the same sentence. There's a significant connection
between them. The Holy Ghost is our comforter, who Jesus sent to get us
through until He returns. Our hope, our longing, our cause, and the promise
of God is that Jesus will return and we will live with Him forever. So you
can see how the power of the Holy Ghost is what gives us our hope, which is
what we live for. Cool, huh?
And I myself also am convinced, my brethren,
that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge,
and also able to instruct one another.
Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly to you in some ways,
to remind you, because of the
that is given to me of God,
that I should be the minister of Jesus
Christ to the Gentiles,
ministering the Gospel of God,
that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable,
being sanctified (set apart, made holy) by the Holy Ghost.
Again, the offering up of the Gentiles is hoped for,
and the Holy Ghost is there to reinforce that hope.
I have reason to glory through Jesus Christ
in those things which pertain to God.
For I will not dare to speak of any of those things
which Christ has not brought about by me,
in order to make the Gentiles obedient,
by word and deed, through mighty signs and wonders,
by the power of the Spirit of God;
so that from Jerusalem, and round about to Illyricum,
I have fully preached the Gospel of Christ.
I'm for real, Paul is saying. And I'm proud of it, and I'm proud of what I'm
preaching. The words, the works, the miracles, all of it is from the Holy
Spirit of God, and it's all truly real.
THE GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE INFORMATION WITH THE
GOLDEN RULE BIBLE VERSE QUOTE DISCUSSION
Yes, in this way I have strived to preach the Gospel,
not where Christ was named (not where Jesus was already preached about),
lest I should build upon another man's foundation
(so I wouldn't take another man's credit),
But as it is written,
... for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that
which they had not heard shall they consider.
For this reason also I have been kept from coming to you.
Romans had knowledge of Jesus, whereas many of the Gentiles in the other
nations had no knowledge of Him, so the Holy Spirit guided Paul to other
But now having no more place in these parts,
(he had accomplished his assignment)
and having a great desire these many years to come to visit you;
whenever I take my journey into Spain,
I will come to you: for I hope to see you in my journey,
and to be brought on my way there by you,
if first I be somewhat filled with your company.
But now I'm going to Jerusalem to minister to the saints.
For it has pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia (Gentile nations)
to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem (Jewish).
It has truly given them pleasure; and their debtors they are.
For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things,
their duty is also to minister to them in carnal things.
So when I have delivered their gift I will come by you into Spain.
And I am sure that, when I come to you,
I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ.
Now I ask you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake,
and for the love of the Spirit,
that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
that I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judea;
(don't forget, there were many Jewish people who weren't believers in Judea,
and Paul was CONSIDERED AS A TRAITOR by the Jewish religious Leaders)
and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;
that I may come to you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.
Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
