A Wondrous Thing!

Welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
A Wondrous Thing!
That is, to the glory of God, or that God may hereby be glorified. The glory of God is a wondrous thing! For He is glorified when sinners and the weak are received. For His glory lies in the fact that He is our benefactor. Therefore it is for His glory, that is, an occasion for His kindness, when those are brought to Him who will receive His blessing. Thus we are not to bring the strong, the holy, the wise. For in them God cannot be glorified, since He cannot be a blessing to them, for they do not need Him.
