Joy in the Holy Ghost – Romans 14:17


Romans 14:17 – For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

The greatest blessing we can experience in this age is the Kingdom of God within our hearts.  While some people only think of the heaven hereafter or even nirvana, the child of God is not so limited.  We can know the sovereign presence of God’s eternal domain in our hearts now.  We do not have to be ever piteous and saddened over our sins and the darkness of this world.  We are charged to rejoice always.

How can we rejoice always when there is so much to trouble us?  The simple answer is that we keep our affection set on thing above and our eyes on Christ.  There will be burdens for sure, but we do not carry them alone nor do we need think we must.  The Holy Ghost is present in the hearts of every born-again believer encouraging good works and scorning sin.  

To enjoy the Kingdom of God now, we must simply yield to the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost.  His comfort will heal our wounds and still our worries.  Trust in the Lord today with all your heart, and you will see.  The righteousness, peace, and joy of God are there.
