Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Romans 14:17

“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

This verse tells us what the Kingdom is not. When a person receives Jesus as Savior he accepts the rule of God in his heart. Now it is not something we eat or drink.It is not a part of action or rituals on our part. This takes place when a person hears the Word of God and then acts on that Word. It is the radical renewal of a person’s inner being by the work of God’s Spirit.When that takes place within us we receive a cloak of righteousness.God looks upon us as if we had never sinned. That is followed up with peace within our heart. The outward sign should show joy that our sins are forgiven. Do you have this peace and joy within? You can by receiving Jesus in your heart.

Regeneration is the work of God
