The Great News of the Gospel – Part 23

I want to personally invite you to watch a liberating and thought-provoking message on Romans 14. I believe it will be an eye-opening experience for you, as Romans 14 challenges preconceived notions and invites you to navigate disputes with others with a whole new perspective.

The Apostle Paul tells us the one who is weak in faith is the legalistic one who burdens themselves with unnecessary rules. This means the one who is strong in faith is the one who is free. Yes, God moves us toward freedom as we mature in our faith.

Plus, we’ll unravel the importance of respecting others’ opinions about matters such as food, drink, and special days, fostering an atmosphere of peace and harmony. And we’ll discuss the importance of walking in love as we navigate this newfound freedom.

Before you click the link to watch this liberating message, take a moment to reflect on these powerful quotes from Romans 14:

  • “Nothing is unclean in itself”
  • “Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves”

Wow! This message is not only enlightening but also incredibly relevant to our lives today. Watch now and be encouraged in the incredible grace of God.
