Not of This World, Part 2

John 17:14-16

As Christians, we are constantly faced with a battle between the natural world we live in and the spiritual life we are called to. In fact, we at times allow societal/cultural norms and values to invade and interface with our faith. Usually over time, these worldly views become confused with true Godly principles. In John 17 Jesus states that we are not of this world because He is not of this world. Jesus continues to say in John 18, during his conversation with Pilate, that His Kingdom is not of this world. There is a clear distinction between the kingdom(s) of the Earth and the Kingdom of God. We have to be cognizant of God’s truth and not allow muddling with worldly standards or beliefs.
