“For the kingdom of God is not food and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 14:17
Imagine that you are closely watching God’s kingdom. There you met joyful angels, you felt the loving communications of saints and you saw the immense grace of God. As a human at this point there are two possibilities of actions. First possible action is that you may thirst for this heaven, adapt it and may recreate its experience for others. Second possible action is that you may get jealous. You may feel awkward, irritated by seeing their unity and love and may act against heaven.
Now let us come back to our world, when we closely observe some families and fellowships in church, we may sense and feel the same righteousness, peace and joy of God’s kingdom. In reality we are closely watching God’s kingdom in-front us.
What do you feel when you see such wonderful families?
What do you feel when you see such wonderful fellowships?
That feeling will tell you where you are at the journey to heaven.
