Measuring Faith

Re:Verse passage – Romans 14:17-19 (day two)

for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Vs. 17

How do you measure your faith? Do you look for a quantifiable measure that gives you comfort that you are on the right path? Do this, do that, eat this, don’t eat that. It is human nature to want to have some measuring stick to guide our journey. It is one of the reasons the law played such a large part of church history. The believers in Rome must have known this struggle all too well. Although it gives us a sense of peace to have a checklist, it is not the nature and character of the Holy Spirit. Righteousness, peace, and joy are harder to quantify, but are the essential markers for our spiritual growth. Try to explain it less, and live it more. You will certainly know the difference.
