B - Bible Verse in NIV (Romans 15:5-6) May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

L - Listen for God's Voice and pray Dear God, we come to You today as a community of believers, seeking Your guidance and grace in our relationships with one another. Help us to have the same attitude of love, compassion, and unity that Jesus demonstrated in His life on earth. Give us the endurance and encouragement we need to support and care for each other, even in the midst of life's challenges. May our unity and love for one another be a testimony to the world of Your goodness and glory. In Jesus' name, Amen.

S - Summarize and Share (Community of Believers theme)
Ladies, there's something truly beautiful and powerful about being part of a community of believers. When we come together as sisters in Christ, united in our love for God and for one another, we have the opportunity to experience the kind of unity and support that can transform our lives and the world around us.

In Romans 15:5-6, Paul gives us a glimpse of what this kind of community can look like. He prays that God would give the believers in Rome the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had – an attitude of love, compassion, and humility. When we approach our relationships with one another with this same mindset, it creates a bond that goes beyond our differences and draws us closer together.

But Paul doesn't stop there. He also reminds us that our unity as believers has a greater purpose – to glorify God with one mind and one voice. When we come together as a community, united in our worship and praise, it sends a powerful message to the world around us. It shows that there is something different and special about the love and grace of God, and it invites others to experience that same love and grace for themselves.

Of course, living in unity and harmony with one another isn't always easy. We all have our own struggles, opinions, and personalities, and there will be times when we disagree or get on each other's nerves. But that's where the endurance and encouragement that God provides comes in. When we lean on Him for strength and support, He gives us the grace we need to love and serve one another, even in the midst of challenges.

Let's embrace the gift of community that God has given us. Let's pray for one another, support each other, and seek to have the same attitude of love and compassion that Christ demonstrated. And let's come together as one voice to glorify our amazing God, who gives us the endurance and encouragement we need to live out our faith together.
