The World Should Hate You
Posted On 10/26/2009 18:15:33 by huddlm

According to Jesus in John 15:18-19, the world should hate us because we are living for Jesus.  Jesus is against the things in the world. If we sow to the flesh then we will reap corruption (Gal 6:8) that is why we really need to practice Repentance.  We are to be separate from the world.  Now I know some will say how can we witness to the world without becoming involved.  Not so, we can follow Jesus' example, He was a witness to the World but yet instill He did not compromise his godly values.  Sometimes we  tend to compromise our godly values in order to witness to the world.

Even in the OT, God warned the Children of Israel about separation from the other nations because He knew that they would be converted to their way of life and not serve Him like they were suppose to. The same thing applies to us today, when we mingle/mix with the world, we start to take on their values and views of things in life and we leave God.

I know everyone wants to belong that is part of our humanistic character and the Lord knows this also that is why we have the body of Christ so that we can bond with eachother. 

Works of the Flesh

Gal 5: 19-21

[19]Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
[20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
[21] Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
