Daily Devotion: What Are You Fighting About?
Bible Reading: Romans 14:13-23
Key Verse: Verse 17– “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
Key Words: righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost
In Romans 14, the people are arguing over whether believers should be eating meat that has been offered to idols. So Paul steps in and tells them to lighten up, the Kingdom of God is not about meat and drink, it’s about righteousness, peace, and joy that only comes from the Holy Ghost.
So often believers bicker and fight over things which only reveal that we are not allowing the Holy Spirit of God to work in our lives.
Each of us should seek to allow the Holy Spirit to control every aspect of our life.
A group of pastors were discussing the possibility of having D. L. Moody serve as an evangelist in a city-wide evangelistic campaign. One minister was reluctant to have Moody speak. “Does he have a monopoly on the Holy Spirit?”
The question was followed by a hushed silence. Finally another man spoke up and said, “No, Moody does not have a monopoly on the Holy Spirit. But the Holy Spirit does have a monopoly on D. L. Moody.”
May that be said of all of us.
What to do:
✞ Let the Holy Spirit have a monopoly on your life.
