Romans   15: 4-9

15:4 For whatever was written, was written to teach us, so that, through patience and the consolation of the Scriptures, we might have hope. 15:5 So may the God of patience and solace grant you to be of one mind toward one another, in accord with Jesus Christ, 15:6 so that, together with one mouth, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15:7 For this reason, accept one another, just as Christ also has accepted you, in the honor of God. 15:8 For I declare that Christ Jesus was the minister of circumcision because of the truth of God, so as to confirm the promises to the fathers, 15:9 and that the Gentiles are to honor God because of his mercy, just as it was written: “Because of this, I will confess you among the Gentiles, O Lord, and I will sing to your name.”
