A Final Preparation
John 15
18 If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first.
19 If you were of the world, it would love you as its own.
Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.
The world is not your friend
-because you are not of the world
-because it was not Jesus’ friend…we should expect persecution
-because we expose their sin
-because of the “TRUTH” barrier
-but we are Christ’s ambassadors to the people of the world
The world that is not your friend…
is also inside the Church
Four Overall Takeaways
-I would urge us to accept that hatred and persecution from the world is normal for believers
-I would urge us to recognize that our flesh loves the things of the world and we must battle that
-I would urge us to always beware of the world’s messaging – real truth is from God’s kingdom
-I would urge us to grow in our love for one another
