Romans 14

New Living Translation (NLT)

The Danger of Criticism

14 Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. For instance, one person believes it’s all right to eat anything. But another believer with a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables. Those who feel free to eat anything must not look down on those who don’t. And those who don’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them. Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall. And with the Lord’s help, they will stand and receive his approval.

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. For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose—to be Lord both of the living and of the dead.

10 So why do you condemn another believer[a]? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For the Scriptures say,

“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bend to me,
    and every tongue will confess and give praise to God.[b]’”

12 Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. 13 So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.

14 I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong. 15 And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died. 16 Then you will not be criticized for doing something you believe is good. 17 For the Kingdom of God is not a Matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too. 19 So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.

20 Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat. Remember, all foods are acceptable, but it is wrong to eat something if it makes another person stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything else if it might cause another believer to stumble. 22 You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right. 23 But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.

From the Thompson Chain Concordance

 

G3563. nous, nooce; prob. from the base of G1097;

(divine or human; in thought, feeling, or will);

 by impl. meaning:--mind, understanding.

Comp. G5590.

G1271. dianoia, dee-an'-oy-ah; from G1223 and G3563;

deep thought, prop. the faculty (mind or its disposition),

by impl. its exercise:--imagination, mind, understanding.

 

 The mind.

At the new birth our spirit is recreated

 and washed by the blood of Jesus

 to cleanse it from sin.

 

But of the mind is relatively unchanged.

 

 We know and understand that we have been saved.

But all the garbage and I do mean garbage of the world

that filled our mind before we were saved

is still very much apart of our mind after we are saved. 

 

With the renewing of the mind

we will be reprogrammed

 to think according to the will of God.

 

To love the Lord with all our mind

we must do 4 things

on an on going bases with our minds.

 

 

(1)

Renew - Reprogram

The first thing we must do

with the mind is renew it or reprogramming it.

We must reprogram the mind

to think according to the will of God,

 which is to transform the mind

 by the study of the Word of God.

 

 

(Rom 12:2 NKJV) 

2 And do not be conformed to this world,

but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,

that you may prove what is that

good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 

As we renew the mind with the Word of God

we must use the things we learn in the

Word to control the way we think.

We choose to think and pray the

will of God as we find His will taught in the Word.

 

 

(Eph 4:21 -29 NKJV)

21 if indeed you have heard Him and

have been taught by Him,

as the truth is in Jesus:

22 that you put off,

concerning your former conduct,

the old man which grows corrupt

according to the deceitful lusts,

23 and be renewed

in the spirit of your mind,

24 and that you put on the new man

 which was created according to God,

in true righteousness and holiness.

25 Therefore, putting away lying,

"Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,"

for we are members of one another.

26 "Be angry, and do not sin":

do not let the sun go down on your wrath,

27 nor give place to the devil.

28 Let him who stole steal no longer,

but rather let him labor,

working with his hands what is good,

that he may have something to give him who has need.

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,

 but what is good for necessary edification,

that it may impart grace to the hearers.

Luke 6:45 New Living Translation (NLT)

45 A good person produces good things

from the treasury of a good heart,

 and an evil person produces evil things

from the treasury of an evil heart.

What you say flows from

 what is in your heart.

 

(2)

Meditating On The Word

The second thing that we must do

 with the mind is meditate on the

Word that we put in our mind.

There is a major power

that can be ours through

 filling the mind with the Word

 and then meditating on the Word

 in our minds day and night.

 

(Josh 1:7 - 9 NKJV)

(7) "Only be strong and very courageous,

 that you may observe to do according to all

the law which Moses My servant commanded you;

do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left,

 that you may prosper wherever you go.

(8) "This Book of the Law

shall not depart from your mouth,

but you shall meditate in it day and night,

that you may observe to do according

to all that is written in it.

For then you will make your way prosperous,

 and then you will have good success.

(9) "Have I not commanded you?

Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid,

nor be dismayed, for the

LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

 

(Phil 4:8 NKJV)

8 Finally, brethren,

whatever things are true,

whatever things are noble,

whatever things are just,

whatever things are pure,

whatever things are lovely,

whatever things are of good report,

if there is any virtue

and if there is anything praiseworthy;

meditate on these things.

 

 

 

Controlling the thoughts of the mind is to

willfully choose what we allow our minds to think about.

Controlling the thoughts of the mind will include

what we allow to enter our minds through the eyes and the ears.

 By controlling the input to the mind

we are controlling the things that we allow the mind

to thing about and then meditate on.

 A single though does not become a sin if not

allowed to stay in the mind.

A wrongful thought only becomes a sin when meditated on.

This leads us to the third thing we must do with our minds.

 

 

(3)

The third thing that we must do

 on an ongoing bases is casting down arguments

and every high thing that exalts itself against

the knowledge of God which is the

Word of God that is in our minds and that we meditate on.

 

 What we must do with the mind

is cast down wrongful thoughts. 

 Besides our own ability to

wrongful meditation on things

 that were already apart of the mind

 when we were saved,

we have to guard against

allowing additional sinful

thoughts to enter our minds

 through our eyes and hears.

In our lives in today’s world,

a great source of wrongful

 thinking and seeing

can be found at any moment

in time on the

TV and at the many ticket boxes.

It is our choice

moment by moment to choose

to stop inappropriate things

that are either apart of our pass

 or comes in from the outside world.

 

An other source of  wrongful thinking

comes from satan.

 

(2 Cor 10:3 NKJV

3 For though we walk in the flesh,

we do not war according to the flesh.

 4 For the weapons of our warfare

are not carnal but mighty in

God for pulling down strongholds,

5 casting down arguments

and every high thing that

exalts itself against the knowledge of God,

bringing every thought into captivity

to the obedience of Christ,

 

satan has the ability to impose his plan

on us through our minds

or to put thought into our minds

 to confuse and misdirect us.

We must constantly be on guard to

put those thoughts out of our minds.

 

(2 Cor 4:3 - 4 NKJV)

3 But even if our gospel is veiled,

 it is veiled to those who are perishing,

4) whose minds the god of this age has blinded,
who do not believe,
lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ,
who is the image of God, should shine on them.

whose minds the god of this age has blinded

 

 

(4)

As we fill our hearts and minds

with the Word of God,

our prayer and supplication

 will be guided by the Word.

 The power of that Word in us will keep

our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus

 

(Phil 4:4 – 7 NKJV)

4 Rejoice in the Lord always.

Again I will say, rejoice!

5 Let your gentleness be known to all men.

The Lord is at hand.

6 Be anxious for nothing,

but in everything by prayer and supplication,

with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

7 and the peace of God,

 which surpasses all understanding,

will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 

Where Do You Stand?

   

Taking the Challenge

Helps You Develop the

Ability To Read Between The Lines.

 

Galatians 5:16-26 New Living Translation (NLT)

Living by the Spirit’s Power

16 So I say,

let the Holy Spirit guide your lives.

Then you won’t be doing

what your sinful nature craves.

17 The sinful nature wants to do evil,

which is just the opposite

 of what the Spirit wants.

And the Spirit gives us desires

that are the opposite of

what the sinful nature desires.

These two forces are constantly

 fighting each other,

so you are not free to carry

out your good intentions.

18 But when you are directed

by the Spirit,

you are not under obligation

to the law of Moses.

19 When you follow the desires

 of your sinful nature,

the results are very clear:

 sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery,

hostility, quarreling,

 jealousy, outbursts of anger,

 selfish ambition, dissension, division,

21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties,

 and other sins like these.

Let me tell you again,

as I have before,

that anyone living that sort of life

will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

22 But the Holy Spirit produces

this kind of fruit in our lives:

 love, joy, peace,

patience, kindness, goodness,

 faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control.

There is no law against these things!

24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus

have nailed

the passions and desires

of their sinful nature to his cross

 and crucified them there.

 25 Since we are living by the Spirit,

 let us follow the Spirit’s leading

in every part of our lives.

26 Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.

 

 

 

being transformed by

the renewing of your mind

With The Word Of God

Results in This;

 

Having The Mind Of Christ.

New Living Translation (NLT)

Jesus, the True Vine

15 “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.

���I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. 10 When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 11 I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! 12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. 16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

The World’s Hatred

18 “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. 19 The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you. 20 Do you remember what I told you? ‘A slave is not greater than the master.’ Since they persecuted me, naturally they will persecute you. And if they had listened to me, they would listen to you. 21 They will do all this to you because of me, for they have rejected the one who sent me. 22 They would not be guilty if I had not come and spoken to them. But now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Anyone who hates me also hates my Father. 24 If I hadn’t done such miraculous signs among them that no one else could do, they would not be guilty. But as it is, they have seen everything I did, yet they still hate me and my Father. 25 This fulfills what is written in their Scriptures[a]: ‘They hated me without cause.’

26 “But I will send you the Advocate[b]—the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me. 27 And you must also testify about me because you have been with me from the beginning of my ministry.
