Romans 14:17 NLT: For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
My dear friend in Christ, many worry themselves about what they will eat and drink. Others fight each other and even kill each other over eating and drinking. These things are not important in the kingdom of God. We are reminded today that the kingdom of God is not just about eating and drinking. Do not allow food and drink to affect your relationship with God and your neighbor.
God is more interested in you living a life of goodness, peace and having joy in the Holy Spirit always. Your relationship with your neighbors should be filled with goodness. Be kind to one another. Do not think, or do evil to others. Allow the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit to take control of your actions. No man can live in peace with His follow men without the help of the Holy Spirit.
It is not strange to say that our world is in great need of love and peace. We hear stories of war and extreme wickedness carried out by people around the world and we wonder why? The devil is actively seeking those he will use to perpetuate his wickedness. Do not allow such in you. You belong to God and will return to Him when this life is over. Have a firm grip on Him and trust Him to guide you through this life. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I am filled with joy in the Holy Ghost.
Heavenly father, may I always live a life of goodness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. May the world experience your love through me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
