Kingdom: Righteousness, Peace, and Joy

A brief and useful exposition of Romans 14:7:

St. Paul says that the kingdom of God is a matter 'of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit' (Romans 14:7). Where Christ's righteousness is laid hold of, there is peace of conscience, and where there is peace of conscience, there is a profound joy.
