“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17). Eating is not a kingdom matter. In other words, God is not going to throw you out of the kingdom of God because you eat Twinkies. What is important is that you walk in righteousness, peace, and joy. Those are all gifts of God’s grace. So walk in His grace. As it connects to eating, you should diet in righteousness, peace, and joy. You are righteous as a believer. Your eating won’t make you less righteous. Your standing with God is sure through Jesus and eating wrong can’t change that. As we said yesterday, eat in peace. Live your life in peace whether it’s eating or anything else you do. Rest in peace as you eat each meal. Then eat in joyous celebration because that’s what the kingdom is all about. It’s living in joy not depression or sadness. It’s not in worrying about whether you food is GMO or not. You may choose not to eat GMO but you can eat joyfully either way. Celebrate you gifts of grace.
