Is Christianity About Pleasing Ourselves?

To read the Bible in a year, read Romans 15:1-20.
Are you strong in the faith? If so, Paul by the Spirit said to “bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves (Romans 15:1). The goal of the religion of Jesus Christ is this, “Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification” (Romans 15:2).
Should you really live that way? Yes, “For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, ‘The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me'” (Romans 15:3). If Jesus lived that way, you can live that way!
Are your reasons for being a Christian all about you or all about Christ and others?
