DIFFERING OPINIONS

DIFFERING OPINIONS

Rom 14:1

Now receive the one who is weak in the faith, and do not have disputes over differing opinions. NET

What God is telling us in today’s bible text is that we should accept those who are weaker. Everyone believes his opinion is best, but when I receive my brother in the other denomination (even though I may think he is weaker in the faith), and he receives me (even though he also may think I am weaker), we will both be stronger because love builds up.

We are also instructed in our text to have no disputes over differing opinions. Let us avoid focusing on, and disputing over the things we see differently (like modes of worship, dressings etc.) and focus on the things that unite us; the truths of the gospel of salvation; Jesus being our only savior; the holy spirit’s baptism; Jesus being God come in the flesh, etc. There is so much we CHRISTIANS have in common than what divides us, let us focus on what we agree on and be a united, stronger and more love filled church; advancing the kingdom of God and conquering the gates of hell that is still holding nations captive.

Prayer: Thank you father because you knew we would not all be in one denomination, that was why you told us aforetime to receive each other and avoid disputes over differing opinions. I pray you help me accept and love my brother for whom Christ shed His blood and redeemed, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
