300. The King in His Kingdom

In previous blogs, I have pointed out that an unhealthy allegiance to your own self can be a source of depression and other dark places. However, self can’t throw out self, and if it could there would be a vacuum within you, and vacuums are filled by whatever is in the vicinity.

In John 18:37, Jesus says, “I am a king.” He is indeed the King of the human race, the second Adam. If we vacate our allegiance to our self and let Him occupy our souls, our life can be one grand vacation. When His Spirit permeates our soul, thinking exclusively about our self is replaced by thoughts of Him. Jesus in our soul is the King in His Kingdom and light in the darkness.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
