Episode 72 of the show was not brought to you by Boston Warehouse Lobster Shaped Kitchen Mitts! Imagine yourself rocking these babies, standing outside by the grill and belting out the Disney song Under the Sea! What would possibly inspire someone to buy these? Joy!
Romans 14:17 says, “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” We may experience something like an out-of-body experience while eating a particularly amazing steak, but really, food doesn’t have anything to do with God’s kingdom. Righteousness, peace and joy, however, have everything to do with it! The steak must thaw properly, be seasoned and cooked just right. The things of God’s Kingdom are gifts that come as a result of spending time with the King of the kingdom. Jesus offers forgiveness through the cross, peace that is beyond our understanding and joy that seems to bubble out from the foundation of our soul.
