Nov. 5, 2015 (Romans 14:7-12)

This is an excerpt from a section of Romans where Paul is writing to a mixed group of Christians in the Church at Rome; some think of themselves as Jews who found the messiah (Jesus) and keep Jewish traditions; others are Jews who don’t keep those traditions; others are pagans who have converted and don’t think of themselves as Jews, at all. They each practice their Christianity in a different way, yet all hold to Jesus. That’s why Paul writes that “If we live we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord.” Everything must be done with Christ in the center. So, don’t look down on those different from ourselves.
