Romans 15:14


And concerning you, my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able also to admonish one another.





Paul had been somewhat critical of the strong and the weak in the Roman church. He now balanced those comments by pointing out other strengths in the church besides the faith of his Roman brethren. Paul’s knowledge of the church in Rome had come to him through sources other than personal observation.

Goodness” is moral excellence that comes through the working of God’s Spirit. Goodness is necessary to apply truth to life, as is knowledge. This was primarily a self-taught church, and the believers were able to instruct one another. “Admonish” or “instruct” means to inculcate. Morally, they were ‘full of goodness,’ intellectually they were ‘complete in knowledge,’ and functionally they were ‘competent to instruct one another.

We all have talents and skills we can share with others. Perhaps you’re an accomplished seamstress, an experienced carpenter, or you’re known among family and friends as an excellent cook. Sharing your skills with someone else can be fun and offer lasting rewards for both of you.
