Sharing Faith

Romans 14:1-12


Romans 14:1-12

1As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. 2One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. 3Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. 4Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. 5One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. 6The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.


Romans 14:1-12

7For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. 8For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. 9For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. 10Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” 12So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.


Different Actions

  • The weaker brother can be:
    • Someone whose weakness is in a certain area, so he sets up rules to keep himself from temptation in that area
    • Someone who is not as learned as you are in the faith, a newer believer or someone who has been stunted in their spiritual growth
  • There is more than one way to follow Jesus in obedience without doing the same thing as everyone else.

Different Perspectives

  • Major beliefs are not up for debate, but there are minor understandings that can have more than one perspective.
  • The Sabbath is a great example. For Jews it is on Saturday. For Christians, it is on Sunday. Who’s right and who’s wrong? Or is the Sabbath a day of honoring God? And can another day do that? What about pastors who work on Sunday? Are they violating the Sabbath?

Same Jesus

  • Both the person who takes one path to fulfill Jesus’ command and the person who takes another path still honor Jesus with individual obedience.
  • Jesus can say, “Don’t get drunk” and one guy will choose abstinence while another guy will choose to not have more than one beer. Neither get drunk. Both are obedient.
  • Jesus is Lord in our debates. When we discuss different perspectives, we must treat one another with respect and honor, for Christ is Lord of all!
