Answers

  1. Romans 14 deals with problems that confront us everyday, such as things that are neither good or bad, and things that are morally neutral, but they affect the conscience.
  2. We don't have to because we will all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to be judged rightly. We each answer to the Lord, now and then.
  3. It is not a judgment to determine whether the believer is saved or lost, but it is a judgment of our lives as believers and what we have done in service for Him.

  2. There is a tendency for parents to breathe a sigh of relief when their children are saved, but there is more. Instead of setting down a lot of rules, remind them that one day they will give account of their lives to the Lord. Give some examples of how you might do this.

Challenge

  1. As Christians, we have a tendency to grumble, especially about things that happen in the church setting. Resolve to make a conscious effort to avoid having a critical spirit.
