“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Romans 14:17 (ESV)
Christ-likeness is not achieved in living by religious laws, but by living according to the fruit of the Spirit. A relationship is built by relating, not by enforced adherence to rules. Closeness to our Lord is the result of living a Spirit-led life, by growing in His grace, walking in peace and joy, even in the midst of storms and chaos.
Let’s pray today that we will not put Old Covenant laws above our New Covenant Savior.
