Word for Today:The word of God is not meat and drink.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:17).
Having received the Holy Spirit , you have every reason to be joyful. According to our memory verse, the kingdom of God is not meat and drink , but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Many people are mixing the kingdom of God with meat and drink. The Psalmist enables us to know that in the Presence of God, there is the fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11).
You would recall that joy is a component of the ‘fruit of the Spirit’ in Galatians 5:22. Salvation of the soul is the single most important gift of God to man in Christ . Salvation through faith in Christ Jesus has much joy associated with it. If this is the case , the relevant question will be: why do we have many Christians who are sad? The answer is in spiritual ignorance . Many Christians are not aware that you cannot find God in the atmosphere of sadness, doubt, unbelief, fear and SIN.
“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3).
“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away” ( Isaiah 51:11).
Have a blessed New Week.
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” ( Philippians 4:23).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, please give us the grace to be daily conscious of the joy of our salvation in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
