Romans 14:17-18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 For the kingdom of God is not in food and drink; but in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.1 [In his sermon early Quaker Stephen Crisp, who dwelled in the kingdom, testified that in one day under the government of Christ, (in the kingdom), one has more joy, pleasure, and delight than a thousand days outside it.]

 18 For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.

James 3:17-18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, fair, gentle, easily accepted, full of mercy and good fruits, immediately understood, and sincere.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "The Lord is gentle and kind to those whom He corrects, and even more than usual to those in suffering circumstances; for what cause have I against the elect? He is nothing but love and kindness."]

 18 The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
