I love reading the Message Bible! I know the KJV is supposedly the most accurate but I can’t find any disagreement and face it King James didn’t speak my language. 😀
ROMANS 15:1 Strength is for service not status.
If we are blessed by God to be able to be strong, it isn’t so we can have something to boast about, it is so we may help others. I know we really know this, but sometimes, especially in unhealthy church situations, the stronger among us become a bit like Saul – a legend in their own minds. 🙂
We hear touch not mine anointed taught as if only the preacher is in that category – not true. Search this out!
There is so much in Romans, whether the Message or KJV. Reading with an open heart and mind is blessing me tremendously.
