Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

Romans 15:7 (ESV)

Here’s a challenging question: how welcoming are we to one another? If we’re honest, I suspect we’d have to admit there were times when our welcome is less than whole-hearted! Perhaps Paul harboured similar concerns about the warmth of welcome extended between the Roman saints. Hence the perfect example with which he presented them: to extend a Christ-like welcome to one another. To do so, is God-glorifying, to do less is unthinkable as we are greeting others for whom Christ died.
