Righteousness, Peace, And Joy In The Holy Ghost

Righteousness, Peace, And Joy In The Holy Ghost

Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

Romans_10-10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

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

Romans 14:17 (KJV)

In Matthew 6:33, Jesus challenges us to seek first the Kingdom of God in order for other things to be given to us. You will notice from our text that the kingdom is not about doing the work of the ministry or going to the mission field. It is not something that flows from the outside in; instead, it flows from the inside out. Remember that Jesus said the kingdom is within us (Luke 17:21).

Paul tells in our text that the kingdom is “[. . .] righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:17, KJV).

  1. Righteousness: Not our own righteousness predicated on our works. It is a gift from Jesus, who has become our righteousness (Romans 5:17, 1Corinthians 1:30). You must be established in the fact that you are now the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).
  2. Peace with God: Because you are justified by faith you now have peace with God (Romans 5:1). And because you have peace with God, which means that God is not mad at you, you also have the peace of God, which passes all human understanding (Philippians 4:7). Jesus gave us peace (John 14:17). With your being established in peace with God, and with the peace of God, you now know that no matter what you’re facing everything will be alright.

  3. Joy in the Holy Ghost: Joy will always be your portion whenever you focus on the finished work of Jesus Christ on your behalf. He paid the price so that you could receive the benefits. What Joy this understanding will produce in your heart! Therefore, see your righteousness in Christ every day. See that all of your sins are forgiven and you will flow in peace and joy. That is what it means to flow in the kingdom of God.

Matthew 6:24-34

Jeremiah 50

Hebrews 8
