Rom 14:17-18 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God…

Being pleasing to God is a great achievement. There is really none higher. List those great things you could do in this world and at the top is giving joy to your God. In righteousness, peace and joy God is pleased.

These are generated by your faith and the power of the Holy Spirit. He smiles on what the Spirit of God does in you and through you. In faith the Spirit brings about this righteousness. As you struggle forward through trial still trusting him there is peace. And by abiding in his love the Spirit brings out is a joy. Joy knowing that soon you will see him face to smiling face.
