Then Pilate went back into the headquarters, summoned Jesus and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?” John 18:33 HCSB
I have had the opportunity to travel to London, England and actually see the royal palace where the Queen of England resides. The Queen does not actually rule England or the United Kingdom; rather, the Queen or King of England is more of a figurehead. The British government is actually run by the Parliament and the Prime Minister.
Jesus was accused of being the King of the Jews. This was an accurate title, however His kingdom is not of this world. An earthly kingdom is only temporary. Jesus’ kingdom is in heaven and will last for eternity. Those who believe in Jesus and make Him Lord of their lives will be a part of His eternal kingdom. Every person must make a decision regarding who Jesus is and if he will make Him the King of his life.
Challenge: Who is king of your life? Do you control the direction of your life or have you given Jesus control to enable you to live for Him? Make Jesus the King of your life and become a part of His eternal kingdom.
