ENJOYING THE TRUE KINGDOM LIFE
Romans 14 vs
17. ¶For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.-(KJV)
EVERY KINGDOM has “some things” to offer. What God’s kingdom offers differs from that of darkness. Human kingdom cannot offer you what Divinity gives. The Spirit of God through Apostle Paul reveals a thought provoking revelation concerning the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is that which emanates from heaven and is also established on earth in the hearts of faithful brethren. It’s not like any other earthly kingdom. He also unveils some great pillars on which this kingdom operate. One of them is RIGHTEOUSNESS; true righteousness is guaranteed only in God’s kingdom, not outside it.
Whoever believes in Christ receives abundance grace and the gift of righteousness which empowers him to live right in God’s sight (Romans 5:17). Another great pillar of this kingdom is PEACE; the inner peace brought about by the redemptive work of Jesus Christ to every man. This state puts you in total harmony, tranquility and assurance of God’s love for you to stand before the throne of grace without fear or intimidation (Rom 5:1). Finally, JOY in the Holy Spirit. Yes, there is such a thing as joy produced by the Holy Spirit.
As He sheds the love of God in your hearts so does He distribute joy unspeakable in you which is not based on the happenings of life (Romans 5:5; 1Peter 1:18). Beloved, the Kingdom of God is not geared towards a schedule or program of works which is cemented around rules and regulations of men, but rather a lifestyle in which you do what is right out of pure love, because God’s law are “written on your heart” (I John 5:3; Prv 3:3). Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit reveal the real reflection of God’s kingdom. This is the true life to live in the kingdom of God. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Amen!
Thank You gracious and loving Father for the things that Your kingdom offer for my life. Righteousness is now my nature, Your peace is my guide and joy unspeakable has become my lifestyle. I am living the reality of Your kingdom on earth. Glory be to Your Name forever in Jesus’ Name ! Amen!_
*Enjoy A Joyous Sunday !
