“Wherever we go, we want to change the atmosphere. That’s what the Kingdom of God is, you know. It’s not just eating and drinking and talking; that’s what a person’s conscience decides. Not what the Kingdom IS. What the Kingdom of God really IS, is righteousness, peace, joy and power.” – Pj’s version based on of Jack Sparrow’s speech (1Co 4:20, Ro 14)
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval.
Romans 14:17-18 NIV
I can tell you what the Kingdom of God is not… Pork or vegan, Beer or Water only, Republican or democrat, etc.
But what the Kingdom of God is, and get this- these please God AND man: Power, Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit.
If I want to share the story of the Kingdom, having joy is as important as righteousness and peace.
