The Book of Romans – Unto the Lord

Posted on Posted in The Book of Romans

“In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.” Romans 14:5-6

What is it that makes a day holy? The person that treats a special day as holy does so as unto the Lord. It does not matter which day we treat as holy. It depends on if we see the day as unto the Lord. Some standards and practices in our local churches are tradition but not necessarily scriptural. Some people feel that there is only one translation of the Bible, but all of God’s Word is holy.

As believers, we have incredible freedom in Christ Jesus. The longer we walk with Him the more liberty we will experience because He patiently shows and encourages us how to tear down barriers that stand in the way. This is why we should not get hung up on minor things. Many Christians like to argue and discuss the small stuff instead of walking in the truth they already know. Instead we should be fully convinced in our own minds what is right and decide that whatever we do, we are doing it for the Lord. The difference is the condition of the heart.

“And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:17)
