Hi ya all ,
I love Romans 14 it has been a fav of mine for many years now and I do try so hard to live by this ruling my heart and apply this to my own soul , so my soul can have the same peace Jesus tells us we can have and Paul also touches on here
when we come together to eat the Spiritual food and the Lord Himself bless it , only strength and growth in His Spirit and truth can come , wow thats awesome to me
I do not judge anyone here , but this is so edifying to skip over and miss an opportunity to say
Rom 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
Rom 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
Rom 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
Rom 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Rom 14:11 For it is written, [As] I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Rom 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Rom 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in [his] brother's way.
Rom 14:14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that [there is] nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him [it is] unclean.
Rom 14:15 But if thy brother be grieved with [thy] meat, now walk thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
Rom 14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Rom 14:18 For he that in these things serves Christ [is] acceptable to God, and approved of men.
Rom 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another
Rom 14:20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed [are] pure;
but [it is] evil for that man who eats with offence.
Rom 14:21 [It is] good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [any thing] whereby thy brother stumbles, or is offended, or is made weak.
Rom 14:22 Hast thou faith? have [it] to thyself before God
. Happy [is] he that condemns not himself in that thing which he allows.
Rom 14:23 And he that doubts is damned if he eat, because [he eats] not of faith: for whatsoever [is] not of faith is sin.
