In verses 1-4, Paul offers a concluding word to the strong in faith and in verses 5-6 Paul prays that the church would have unity in Christ that would result in unified praise to God. The main point of this section is Paul's imperative in v. 2, "Let each of us please his neighbor" ("neighbor" probably alludes to the familiar love command of Lev 19:18). This injunction is grounded in the indicative reality of v. 1 (i.e. that it is the strong who are obliged to bear with the weak and not merely please themselves) and the example of Christ in v. 3 (who came not to please himself but to bear reproach). Verse 4 explains further the significance of the OT quotation [ Ps 69:9] applied to Christ in v. 3 and serves as a climactic motivation for living out the imperative in v. 2 (which itself is anchored in the OT through the allusion to Lev 19): The Scriptures were written to instruct us, so that we might have hope. These Scriptures (v. 4) and prayers of faith (vv. 5-6) are the very means by which God intends to give his people endurance and encouragement to the end that the church may unite in praising God.
