The local church includes a wide spectrum of individuals, and the harmony of a church family in spite of these differences testifies to its divine nature. Alistair Begg reminds us to deal with the idle, encourage the timid, and help the weak in order that we might live peacefully among each other. As we help and encourage one another, we exalt the one who purchased our peace and increase the effectiveness of the local church
14And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle,3 encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. 15See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.
