What Does Romans 14:8 Mean?

If we live, we live to honor the Lord; and if we die, we die to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

Romans 14:8(ISV)

Verse Thoughts

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 alone.

No matter what we eat or drink we are to do it as unto the Lord. Wherever we go or whatever we do we are to do it as unto the Lord. No matter what we think and how we act – whether we live or whether we die, we belong to the Lord and we are to do everything as unto Him – to glorify His name.

Oh, in reality, whether our lives please Him or sadden Him He will ultimately use it to His glory – but how much better that in all we say and all we do and all we think - we do everything as unto the Lord. As we live, let us live to honour the Lord; and should we die, let us die to honour the Lord. For whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. - for He is our Saviour – He is our Lord – He is our God.

My Prayer

Loving Father, I pray that in all things I live to please You – not in my own strength but through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Bring me to the point with I can say without hesitation, Thy will, not mine be done – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
