1 Corinthians 10- Glory to God

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake: For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof. If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof: Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? 1 Corinthians 10:23-30

As Born Again Christians in Christ, we have freedom in Christ. Jesus set us Free, not only from the wrath of sin, but from every chain that Satan wants to bind us down with (John 8) As the Apostle Paul says “All things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient, beneficial, or edifying”  As Paul will later say “Whatever we do, we should do for the glory of God” (v31)

But you do something, ask yourself, does this glorify God? Are you being the hands and feet of Christ, are you the Salt and Light that we are called to be? (Matthew 5) I like what Paul says here also “For the Earth is The Lords” Amen! Christians get so wrapped up in whether something is pagan or should we eat kosher stuff, the bottom line is everything belongs to The Lord. Jesus Christ is King of all KIngs, every knee will bow before him, there is nothing that above The Lord or not under Christs authority

So why is my liberty judged of another mans conscience, as Paul said. If you are convicted to not eat pork or if you don’t want to celebrate Christmas, don’t condemn other believers because of your conscience. We are now under the Law of Christ and not the Mosaic Law in the New Covenant

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.  1 Corinthians 10:31-33

Whatever we do , do it for the glory of God, what we think , what we drink, what we speak about, everything should be to glorify our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen!
