Bible Reading (Romans 14:7-12)

(Alive or dead we belong to the Lord.)

The life and death of each of us

has its influence on others;

if we live, we live for the Lord;

and if we die, we die for the Lord,

so that alive or dead we belong to the Lord.

This explains why Christ

both died and came to life,

it was so that he might be

Lord both of the dead and of the living.

This is also why you should never

pass judgment on a brother

or treat him with contempt,

as some of you have done.

We shall all have to

stand before the judgment seat of God;

as scripture says:

Be my life –

it is the Lord who speaks –

every knee shall bend before me,

and every tongue shall praise God.

It is to God,

therefore, that each of us must give an account of himself.

The word of the Lord.

R.) Thanks be to God.
