Romans 14:1

Romans 14:1

Paul's closing remarks in his epistle start to challenge the more spiritually mature believer who may rejoice in the gracious liberty he has in Christ Jesus, while harboring his own ungodly attitudes towards the personal practice of those that are weaker in the faith - exposing an unchristian bias against those that are spiritually immature or weaker in certain doctrinal issues.

Although we should not compromise the glorious read more...

Romans 14:5

Romans 14:5

In Romans 14 Paul touches on an important biblical principle of living in the liberty we have in the Christ Jesus while addressing our attitude towards fellow believers, whose viewpoint may differ from our own. They may come from a different culture, participate in alternative customs or find their conscience forbids them to behave in a certain way or they may enjoy the complete liberty that is ours in Christ.

Paul explains that read more...

Romans 14:7

Romans 14:7

Legalism and license can become a 'ping-pong' type argument that often rages in Christian quarters, between 1) the dangers of legalism - which replaces the freedom we have in Christ with a string of man-made rules, and the reintroduction of Jewish practices which were set aside at the cross – AND 2) the perils of license - the abuse of the freedoms we have in Christ as an excuse to sin. Neither legalism nor licence are read more...

Romans 14:8

Romans 14:8

Jesus is our Saviour - He is our Lord – He is our God. Jesus saved us by grace...and salvation, which translates into eternal life and all its attendant benefits, is His gift of grace to all who believe in Him - thru faith. The price He paid for us was His own life and as believers we should be living unto the Lord – living to please our Saviour - for the honour of His name and to the glory of God. We belong to Him and we stand or fall before Him read more...

Romans 14:9

Romans 14:9

As believers we are called to do everything as unto the Lord. In word and deed, action and attitude, mind and motive - we are to live our lives as unto the Lord. All that we say and all that we do is open before Him and subject to His eye of scrutiny. All that we are in thought, word and deed is susceptible to His divine approval or His righteous displeasure.

Whether we live or whether we die we are to do everything as unto the read more...

Romans 14:12

Romans 14:12

Paul is reminding us that we alone are responsible for our word and deeds, and the way that we conduct our life, but so also are our brothers and sisters in Christ. They too are individually responsible for what they say and what they do; what they eat or what they drink; what they wear or where they go.

However, too often we become critical of Christian brethren who do not conform to our own set standards of preferred behaviour read more...

Romans 14:16

Romans 14:16

Christians live under grace and not under law. We are not bound by food laws, as were the children of Israel nor by a dress code as were the priests of Jehovah –but neither should we criticize those who choose to follow their consciences in certain matters. We are not required to worship on a specific day nor are we commanded to keep certain feast days, special festivals or the many ordinances imposed by man – for as believers in the age of grace we are free read more...

Romans 14:17

Romans 14:17

In totality the kingdom of God reaches to every place, in the entire universe, stretching through time and beyond eternity, but in His revelation to man, which is detailed in the Scriptures, the kingdom of God almost always restricts its horizons to God’s current work and future rule, through a group of His obedient servants.

The kingdom of God is that heavenly sphere of life, where His children are willingly governed by the read more...

Romans 14:17

Romans 14:17

Whether in this life today, the future Millennial kingdom, or even in the eternal ages to come, neither external observances nor the necessities of life should eclipse our joy in the Lord. True worship does not consist of the actions we undertake; the outward behaviours we exhibit or strict adherence to certain prescribed laws or imposed practices. True worship emanates from a soul that is right with God and an attitude that is conceived in the inner heart, read more...

Romans 14:19

Romans 14:19

Glance through many Christian social media sites and you often discover a critical spirit surfacing and a judgmental attitude being fostered and yet Paul spends much of his time urging brothers and sisters in Christ, to live together in godly harmony.

Paul is absolutely clear in all his teachings that the essentials of the Gospel of grace and the good news of salvation in Christ, where the incarnate Word of God died for our read more...
