People's Bible Notes for Romans 14:6


Ro 14:6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth [it] unto the Lord. It is regarded unto the Lord if he keeps it, because he thinks it is the Lord's will. If another refuses to keep it, because he believes it is the Lord's will that he should not, his non-keeping is to the Lord. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord. Meats. See Ro 14:2. He who obeys what he regards the Lord's will in this, either eating or abstaining, does it with reference to the Lord.
