Text: Romans 14:1-9

Key Verse: “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 Lords. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived that he might be Lord both of the dead and living” (Romans 14:8,9).

Paul the apostle, said in Galatians 2:20, I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. This is a summary of the life of one who, after being separated from God by sin, has truly repented and accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour. A believer should always make a bold statement about his stand in Christ and also of his level of spiritual maturity.


Paul the apostle raised, in our text, the issues of strong and weak faith, what to eat, what not to eat, and the attitude of those who tried to judge others who were doing what they themselves considered unacceptable. He made it clear that no one had the right to judge another mans servants. Paul the apostle concluded that while some matters were strong enough as they bordered on the foundation of the truth, others were not so important to be legislated upon. He surmised summary that believers should distinguish between essential and non-essential matters as they affect doctrines. However, the challenge about whether to eat or not to eat meat or herbs was more acute for those who were idol worshippers before their conversion. They preferred not to eat meat, to avoid being reminded of their past pagan lifestyle.

The lesson for believers today is that eating anything should not be seen as a moral matter. Our personal attitude about eating or not eating should not lead us to unjustly condemn one another. And concerning estimating one day above another, we must rise beyond such parochial definition. We are to give every day in the week unto God. The first day of the week however is recognized in the New Testament as having a special significance because of Christs resurrection.

Thought for the day: Eat, drink and do all things to the glory of God.
