A Pastoral Purpose. In recent years the section Romans 14:1–15:6 has assumed a central significance in attempts to clarify Romans’ purpose: that Paul was writing to heal potential or real divisions among the churches in Rome (see Pastor).
In every Christian’s heart there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross; if he refuses the cross he remains on the throne. Perhaps this is at the bottom of the backsliding and worldliness among gospel believers today. We want to be saved but we insist that Christ do all the dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the little kingdom of Mansoul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Caesar; but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility.
Romans 6:11–14; Romans 12:1–2; Galatians 5:24
The Root of the Righteous, 72.
A. W. Tozer
james D. G. Dunn
weak Christian, not the judeaizers in Galatians, they thoughtg that they could put God in their debt by works of righteousness and were trying to force heretical teachings and develop followers of themselves, the “weak” in Romans is those who were not yet clear on the OT regulations under the new covenant established by Christ.
we will not agree on everything and we are called to not disrupt or withhold fellowship from others because of things we disagree on that are not clearly prescribed in scripture. Namely food and drink and days

Accept others because God accepts you/them

Romans 14:1–3 CSB
Welcome anyone who is weak in faith, but don’t argue about disputed matters. One person believes he may eat anything, while one who is weak eats only vegetables. One who eats must not look down on one who does not eat, and one who does not eat must not judge one who does, because God has accepted him.

God makes you /them stand sustains

Romans 14:4 LEB
Who are you, who passes judgment on the domestic slave belonging to someone else? To his own master he stands or falls, and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

Be convinced=God is Lord

Romans 14:5–9 (LEB)
One person prefers one day over another day, and another person regards every day alike. Each one must be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who is intent on the day is intent on it for the Lord, and the one who eats eats for the Lord, because he is thankful to God, and the one who does not eat does not eat for the Lord, and he is thankful to God. For none of us lives for himself and none dies for himself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For Christ died and became alive again for this reason, in order that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
1 Corinthians 10:23 LEB
All things are permitted, but not all things are profitable. All things are permitted, but not all things build up.
1 corinthians 13:7 “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Respond accordingly=\God will judge

Romans 14:10–12 (LEB)
But why do you judge your brother? Or also, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For it is written,
“As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me,
and every tongue will praise God.”
So each one of us will give an account concerning himself.
