    a servant to the Lord is all that matters keep your hearts pure and don't bicker over how anyone who is in Christ serves our Father, understand each other and respect each other, our goal is the same to enter into the gate and Bow before the King

    Paul was speaking of the Jews and the gentiles in their customs of beliefs, we should not condemn how anyones worship to the Lord, keep festivals, or what anyone eats, or drinks, if we keep the sabbath or go and work with our hands, Christ came and fulfilled the old laws,but it is wise not to judge another on how they choose to serve the Lord, we are all servants to the Lord our God Amen God bless
