16Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil. 17For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, 18because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.

Jesus, help me to live in “righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”.  I know that all of these can only come from You.   Let me live in Your righteousness Jesus.  The only tru pease we can have the the peace You give through the Holy Spirit.  To rest and have peace when things are in turmoil and we are in the midst of a trial, that is Your peace.  Please Jesus, help me live in that peace.  And what joy does this world really offer?  This life seems to go past so fast.  But the joy that is inside my soul when I am with You, that is true joy.  That is joy that a bad day cannot steal.  Please Lord, help me spread Your joy, and peace, and even Your righteousness through my life.  *Romans14*
