So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.
God may not require of me what He requires of you. We must be careful not to put a stumbling block in the way of others. What you allow in your life may be an offense to others. Don’t destroy your brothers with your careless living.
In stead of judging others, it is time to worry about yourself and to get your own house in order.
Nothing is unclean of itself, but if you are convicted of the thing, they you should abstain. It is important for your life to be an example to those who are weak. You are responsible first for yourself and then for others.
Some things that we know are certainly and morally wrong, and other things are excusable. Be careful not to break off relationship with your friend because they are still bound and you are free. Love them and pray for them, allowing the Holy Spirit to convict them.
Pastor interjected: I know some Godly ministers who still smoke cigarettes.
If God tells you NOT to do something, then stay away from it. I Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
Some things may be “legal,” but they are not appropriate and I will not be pulled under the power of it.
The body is not for sexual immorality, but the boy is for the Lord, therefore glorify God in your body.
May God convict individuals without judgment, but gently reveal how to walk holy before God. Not with a spirit of Religion (law) but a spirit of surrender to the will of God. Allow your head knowledge to become heart knowledge and more Godly minded.
Be a person who wants more of God, Discover for yourself what God wants from you. I challenge you to read the Bible for yourself, and allow him to give you new wine skins.
