Bible Commentary for Romans 14:12

Wesley's Notes for Romans 14:12

14:10 Or why dost thou despise thy brother - Hitherto the apostle as addressed the weak brother: now he speaks to the stronger.

14:11 As I live - An oath proper to him, because he only possesseth life infinite and independent. It is Christ who is here termed both Lord and God; as it is he to whom we live, and to whom we die. Every tongue shall confess to God - Shall own him as their rightful Lord; which shall then only be accomplished in its full extent. The Lord grant we may find mercy in that day; and may it also be imparted to those who have differed from us! yea, to those who have censured and condemned us for things which we have done from a desire to please him, or refused to do from a fear of offending him. #Isa 45:23|

14:13 But judge this rather - Concerning ourselves. Not to lay a stumblingblock - By moving him to do as thou doest, though against his conscience. Or a scandal - Moving him to hate or judge thee.

14:14 I am assured by the Lord Jesus - Perhaps by a particular revelation. That there is nothing - Neither flesh nor herbs. Unclean of itself - Unlawful under the gospel.

Discussion for Romans 14:12

  • Brianna on Romans 14:12
    I enjoyed Gayle 's comment. Definitely want to rely on Jehovah God in this time of the end. This scripture highlights to me that we have a measure of responsibility for what we do in life. In one aspect in particular, there are many pastors and priest teaching many different things. But do we not have access to the Bible to see for ourselves what it teaches? Would not we be at fault for following false doctrines because we did not take the time to verify our beliefs from the scriptures? This scripture encourages me to be a diligent reader of God 's word. I am accountable for my life. ME!

    we are all going to give an account to God,even those so called Christian who think they are perfect right now! I know I will give an account for how I live so I pray everyday that God will close my mouth,be my eyes,ears,and teach me more and more how to walk!
  • Niyi Amuda on Romans 14:12
    Romans 14:12 is one of the Scriptures that talks about one giving account to God. I love this verse especially because of the words used here so that even a child would understand its meaning.

    It says, 'every one' shall give account to God. When God says everyone I think He means everyone. I don't know what you think, but know from this verse that God's judgment is not only for a category of persons - I like to combine the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:10, where by divine inspiration said, '...we all must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ...'

    take note beloved that it is a MUST. So, whether you believe God's Word is true or not, whether you attend church or not, whether you believe in God or not, YOU'LL STAND BEFORE GOD WHEN YOU DIE.

    Remember Hebrews 9:27? It is appointed unto man once to die and after this THE JUDGMENT. You can be living in sin now and think God isn't going to judge you. You may even assume there is no God (for that makes you a fool), you may think you get away with all your sins. You'll escape God's judgment with your intellect - forget it!

    You're wasting your time. You cannot deceive God. He will open your secret life to everyone that day and He will judge you justly according to His high standard of holiness, righteousness and truth (Hebrews 4:13).

    Make your ways right with God lest you appear before Him unprepared and unconverted, there is no mercy on the second side of eternity. Think eternity! Think God!

    I agree. Amen! And Godbless...
