Romans 14:17 (KJV) For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost

Tade and Tayo lost their jobs in the same week. On the Saturday of that week, Tade went for evangelism. Tayo who also was a member of the evangelism unit, however, stayed at home complaining, crying, and asking God questions. When Tade returned, she asked Tayo why she was not present for evangelism. Tayo immediately burst into tears: 'why should God do this to me? Why me? I have been faithful; I paid my tithe'. It was at that point that Tade realized that Tayo had not really known God as her Father because she lacked God's peace and joy.

Christianity is not just another religion, it is a life. Christians are people who have the life of Christ and are Christ-like.

In John 16:33 (KJV) Jesus says "in me you will have peace, but in the world tribulation" and in John 14: 27 (ESV) Jesus says "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid".

You see, Christians are people who have God’s peace. They are joyful even when faced with challenges; they have peace, even in the midst of storms. It is an inward life manifesting outwardly, it is no pretense neither is it complacency. It is real and tangible.

If your joy and peace is tied to things, situations, or happenings, you need to check if you really have God in you. God’s peace is from God who is above all. All things are subject to it and not the other way round.

This peace and joy is a mark that distinguishes Christians.

Go into today knowing that true peace and joy are exclusively reserved for God's children. Do you want true peace and joy? Become God's child.
