Today's Verses : Rom 14:1-23
Key Verse:

Rom 14:17

For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Footnotes:
The kingdom of God is the sphere in which God exercises His (authority) so that He may express His glory for the fulfillment of His (purpose). In such a kingdom, what matters is not eating and drinking but righteousness, peace, and joy in the (Holy Spirit). If we are righteous, right, and proper toward others, toward things, and toward (God), we will have a (peaceful) relationship with others and with God. Thus, we will have joy in the Holy Spirit and, in particular, before God. In this way we will be (filled) with joy and with the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:52) and will live out righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, which are the (reality) of the kingdom of God. (SeeRom 14:17 note 2)
