“For This We Were Born”

Passage: John 18:33-37

I wonder how Pilate heard Jesus' retort, My kingdom is not from this world. That's pretty safe, huh?  What do you hear in these words? Safety as well? Sometimes I'm glad that Christ's reign is not from this world. However, that's not to say Christ's reign is not intended for this world. The Reign of Christ reminds us that the old era of domination, duplicity, violence and death has now been supplanted by the reign of Christ's truth. God in Christ has acted and Bob Dylan sings, your old road is rapidly fading. Are we ready to let go of the old and embrace the new?
