The Ultimate Priority - Worship . . . Part 2

WORSHIP AS A WAY OF LIFE          Page 3

V. 5 ** What is the next typical preference that men may hold in their walk with the Lord?

Regarding "one day above another".

** What is Paul calling all men to do?

He is saying that in matters which are not specifically commanded or forbidden in Scripture, it is always wrong to go against your conscience.

V. 6 ** What is the driving motive behind both of these believers' actions?

They are doing what they do "for the Lord".

V. 7-8

** These next two verses contain the third reason for us accepting one another as we manifest our worship in the outward dimension. What is it?

"...we are the Lord's" We are not islands who stand alone, but rather vital parts of His body which have been placed there as His will directs. All see - 1Corinthians 12:12-18

V. 9-12

** Finally, the last four verses of this passage will show us the fourth and most dominate reason that we worship God by accepting one another. Let's read the text and see if we can find it.

V.10 "For we shall all stand before the judgement seat of God." Plainly, we accept one another, because we are not the Judge!

Paul knew that his worship of Jesus Christ would be deemed acceptable, first of all, by how it manifested itself in the outward dimension.

Compare Romans 15:15-16

"...my offering of the Gentiles might become acceptable..."

with Philippians 4:18

"...what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God".
