“Eat anything that is sold in the meat market without asking questions for conscience’ sake; for the earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains” (1 Corinthians 10:23-24).
There is a freedom in the Lord. It is not freedom to do as you please, but freedom from the constant worry of whether or not this or that will separate you from the Lord. You are saved by grace. Period. Live then in a manner pleasing to the Lord by focusing on loving God and your neighbor. Be guided by the Holy Spirit and He will set the appropriate boundaries.
Lord, help me learn this new freedom You give me that I would live into the life to which you have called me. All around me are those who keep placing boundaries that are not Your boundaries. Guide me in the way of truth that I would live according to Your boundaries and not man-made boundaries. Lead me in the truth of the Gospel that I would live according to Your will.
Jesus, You said that if You made us free we would be free indeed. Lead me in this freedom not to be free for all things, but free to do the right things for the sake of the Gospel. Guide me in the Father’s will to be discerning, seeing the difference which is being spoken of here. Guide me to be bold in faith and strong in conviction that I may now and always abide in the truth You have revealed. Amen.
