Do We Belong to the World?

Jn 15:18-21

If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you”. – John 15:19

“The world hates you.”

Strong words, but they tell us what we need to hear. After all, if the world hates us, then we are in good company. The world hated Jesus, too.

It takes courage to say and do what is right, especially if it is unpopular. 

Dear Jesus, help me to make you the Lord of my life everyday. Help me to put you first in my life and to always try to do your will, and not just when it is comfortable or easy to do so. Amen.
