Romans 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
Follow your conscience and keep your faith in God.
We live in a world where there are multiple influences and the question constantly lurks in the hearts and minds of all people globally, "Which way is the right way? Who is promoting the right teaching? Which organization should I really join? Which beliefs and practices should I follow? Who is closest to promoting GOD, LOVE and THE TRUTH?"
It was the very same thing in The Church of Rome thousands of years back, when The Apostle Paul quickly had to put pen to paper and write and provide much guidance. There was much division and hatred among the people over several issues.
Examples: 1. Should they eat meat? Roman 14:2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Romans 14:3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
Then 2, there was the question and big debate and almost church split over whether or not believers should observe feasts. Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
What does the Apostle Paul respond and say? JUDGE NOT! Follow your conscience. Let every man be persuaded in his own mind.
To sum up his sermon or essay paper, Brilliant Paul wrote, "Romans 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another."
We can therefore learn hence. Instead of spending much time looking around at each other and their groups and organizations, let us all aim to LOVE GOD and find some common ground on which we can all agree. That is the GROUND OF PEACE, LOVE and EDIFYING AND BUILDING UP EACH OTHER instead of JUDGING and CRITICIZING and CONDEMNING.
Follow your conscience and keep your faith in God!
LOVE DOES THE JOB!
