Romans 14:17

The kingdom of God, then, is not a matter of how long or how short your skirt is or whether or not you enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, or what is your favorite type of music.  The kingdom of God is a matter of peace, righteousness, and joy in the Holy Spirit.  We, who are card-carrying citizens of this kingdom, must daily seek God’s help to live and walk in this way – practically, and in every situation.  Micah 6:8 says it perfectly,  “He has shown you, oh man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you:  to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
