Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 14:8

_ _ For whether we live, we live unto the Lord — the Lord Christ; see Romans 14:9.

_ _ and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s — Nothing but the most vivid explanation of these remarkable words could make them endurable to any Christian ear, if Christ were a mere creature. For Christ is here — in the most emphatic terms, and yet in the most unimpassioned tone — held up as the supreme Object of the Christian’s life, and of his death too; and that by the man whose horror of creature worship was such, that when the poor Lycaonians would have worshipped him, he rushed forth to arrest the deed, directing them to “the living God,” as the only legitimate Object of worship (Acts 14:15). Nor does Paul teach this here, but rather appeals to it as a known and recognized fact, of which he had only to remind his readers. And since the apostle, when he wrote these words, had never been at Rome, he could only know that the Roman Christians would assent to this view of Christ, because it was the common teaching of all the accredited preachers of Christianity, and the common faith of all Christians.
