Wesley's Notes for Romans 14:17

People's Bible Notes for Romans 14:17

Ro 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink. Christ's dominion; the church visibly; personally, his sway over your soul. This does not depend on "meat and drink". It rises higher than food questions. Personally, its essence is not in external things. It consists of: Righteousness. Justification; the forgiveness of sins. Peace. Reconciliation to God, and peace of soul as the result. And joy in the Holy Ghost. The rejoicing of those who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Ro 8:1,4). Seek these rather than to eat and drink what you will.

 

Comments for Romans 14:17

Mark's comment on 2014-07-04 06:35:04:

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. This scripture talks about eternal life which is a witness in the heart of man thoughts spirit to find that there 's no guilt in the heart, only peace, righteousness awareness of what want GOD wants, loves and hates and joy in the only Holy Ghost. peace which is not for a moment but forever. The peace that God gives is His words when they have settled in man 's heart. every time we enter into mediation on the cares of the world eg what to eat, drink and dress is like conversing with a thief who comes to steal away the word because the devil knows that 's the life of man unlike man that is the reason JESUS warned the disciples in the parable of the sower. always live one day at a time knowing at the end of the day you have to give account to GOD "What word of Mine did you walk in " that 's the reason JESUS for man to fulfil the Word of GOD.

Prophet T.K.O OLOIDI's comment on 2013-09-16 10:31:14:

As regenerated Christians, we need to go after things and activities that will add values to our spiritual lives and enable us to grow rapidly in the Spirit. We should push more for spiritual food(WORD OF GOD) and water(BAPTISM) as well as FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT rather than eating always which may even lead to the sin of glutony.

 

Jeremiah's comment on 2013-08-16 01:02:38:

Paul gave an in depth inspirational explanation of what God was saying in Deut 8.3 and what Jesus said in Mat 4.4; that man shall not live only be bread alone, but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of the God. Not just meat and drink, but consciously living by the word, by faith, in the spirit and by the law of the spirit.
