DAY 18 - Whose Kingdom Are You Fighting For?
Today’s Reading: John 18
(Please read John 18: 1 – 40 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)
Please click the links below to John 18:
Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place." John 18: 36
Today when I read John 18, Jesus gave me a number of questions to think of. Some questions I have answers for. Some I don’t. Some questions, I need to have some actions. Some I need to respond with repentance. Here are those questions from Jesus:
What are you fighting for? Whose kingdom are you fighting for? Do you know where my Kingdom is? Do you know how to fight for my Kingdom? Are you willing to die for me, your King? If not, which king are you fighting for? If yes, do you know when to die, where to die and how to die for me?
He then said, “Come with me to the olive grove daily and let me show you.”
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to come close to you daily in the olive grove you prepare for me daily that I can learn how to fight for your Kingdom and die for you. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
