Day 104 - John 18:36-40

Points to Ponder:

1.         What kind of king is Jesus?

2.        How does he rule?

3.         Where does he rule?

Verse:

“My kingdom is not of this world,” said Jesus. “If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight, so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews.  But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.” John 18:36

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, your kingdom is not of this world.You did not come to be an earthly king.You came to rule my heart, to rule my life.You came to rule over this world for my spiritual good and to bring me into your heavenly kingdom. Sometimes this is all hard for me to wrap my mind around.I don’t always grasp or understand why you do what you do in my life. I don’t always grasp or understand why things go the way that they do.But then I have to remember that you aren’t a king after my heart. You are a king after God’s heart who does what is best in the sight of your Father, who does what is best for the salvation of his people.Lord Jesus, thank you for ruling my heart and life as my King.I trust you and find refuge in you.Amen.
