For none of us lives for our-self,
and non of us dies for our-self,
If we live, we live for the Lord,
and if we die,
we die to the Lord.
For whether we live or die,
we belong to the Lord.

For Christ died and rose to life,
to rule over both dead and living.
Why do you judge your brother?
Or why do you show contempt for your brother?
For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God.

We who are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak,
and not to please ourselves.

Let each of us please his neighbor for his good,
to edify him.
For Christ did not please himself,
but, as it is written: ”The reproaches of those who reproached me fell on me.”

For what was written in former days
was written for our instruction,
that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures,
we might have hope.

May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another,
in accord with Christ Jesus.

Welcome one another,
as Christ has accepted you,
for God’s glory.
For God’s glory!
For God’s glory!

For God’s glory!
