Accept Folks Where They Are–Romans 14 Part 1

It is difficult to accept people as they are.  We have all been raised a little differently.  Between heritage, parentage and our life journey we all have different lists of do’s and don’ts as well as priorities of what’s important and not important.  In that vein, as a body of believers, we are called to realize and accept that we are all different and embrace the differences rather than attack them. 

 The world knows we are different.  They have been screaming it for generations.  They have tried everything within their power to eradicate Christianity from the face of the earth.  Persecution, Education, litigation and media slant have all attempted to chip away at the Spiritual foundations built in this country and around the world.  With that much adversarial activity it is incumbent for the Church to band together and rise above petty differences.

 If we, as a body, stood for the truth and our faith; then we would be a force to be reckoned with.  We would not be considered tangential radicals, but, the one unified and reasoned voice in a world of chaos. God said it best, “If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways, seek my face and pray—then I will hear them, forgive their sin and heal their land!” 2 Chronicles 7:14

 God Bless You

Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.
