the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. – Romans 14:17.
When we know we are righteous through Christ, we will experience peace, and peace will give us joy. Are you experiencing joy today? If not, do you believe you are righteous through Christ? That when He died, He gave you His robe of righteousness? That He took your place on the Cross? If you don’t, that is why you aren’t experiencing joy. Study and meditate on II Corinthians 5:21 today.
