Message of the Day: We All Belong to Christ, Be Considerate!

If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” (Rom. 14:8, NIV)

In verses 1-4 the Apostle Paul warns believers not to disdain and criticize those who hold different views on diet and the observance of special holy days. Christians live not just to please themselves but to please Christ.

If you are strong, do not look down on weaker people. If you are weak, do not criticize the stronger ones just because they feel free to eat anything or they share different practices, “For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone.” (v. 7)

We belong to one community of faith. We are responsible for our actions towards other members of that community. We all belong to Christ, thus we ought to be considerate.
