Christian Responsibility

Responsibility is respond-ability: the God-given ability to respond to any situation of life in accordance with his commandments. It is the ability to respond biblically to whatever God or man does or says. It is the ability, as Romans 15:1-3 says, to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. It is the ability to please one’s neighbor for his good to his edification. It is the ability to emulate Christ who did not please himself, “but, as it is written, the reproaches of those who reproached thee fell upon me.”
