1Him that is weak in the faith receive you, but not to doubtful disputations. 2For one believes that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eats herbs. 3Let not him that eats despise him that eats not; and let not him which eats not judge him that eats: for God has received him. 4Who are you that judge another man’s servant? to his own master he stands or falls. Yes, he shall be held up: for God is able to make him stand.
1 Aceptad al que es débil en la fe, pero no para juzgar sus opiniones. 2 Uno tiene fe en que puede comer de todo, pero el que es débil sólo come legumbres. 3 El que come no menosprecie al que no come, y el que no come no juzgue al que come, porque Dios lo ha aceptado. 4 ¿Quién eres tú para juzgar al criado de otro? Para su propio amo está en pie o cae, y en pie se mantendrá, porque poderoso es el Señor para sostenerlo en pie.
Many times, a new believer walks away because “old believers” try to throw law after law at them. Let the Holy Spirit do the work with new believers. It is not our place to judge them and tell them “how” to do it. God works with each of us in slightly different ways and we need to allow Him to. As long as a person confesses Jesus is Lord of their life, give them love and encouragement and God will do the rest.
