Romans 15:5-7

Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,

that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

“the patience” and “the comfort” from Scripture (verse 4) is here seen to be authored by God.

according to Jesus Christ — according to His example as seen in verse 3

Unity will bring glory to God.

Christ’s reception of us was for God’s glory as is our reception of each other.

Philippians 2:4-5 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.

receive = receive to one’s self-embrace
