Edification

Read Romans 14.19-23

“.. make every effort to do what leads to peace and mutual edification ..” (Rom.14.19)

Believers have a responsibility towards those who in Christ are their brothers and sisters: work hard at building up those brothers and sisters, and at the same time make sure you’re not tripping them up.

Why is ‘effort’ (v.19 – NIV) required to ensure both ‘peace’ and ‘mutual edification’ within Christ’s church?

What steps might you take today to build up another believer?

Prayer: Forgive me, my Father, for that thoughtlessness and carelessness on my part, in word and deed, which all too often mars the beauty of the gospel.
