Self-denial on Behalf of Others Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.” For whatever was written in earlier … Continue reading Read Through the Bible – Day #131 – Romans Chapter 15
