We live in a fallen world. A world that has rejected God, even after He came to the world in the form of a man in Christ Jesus, to show His love. Jesus told us in the Gospel of John chapter 15. If the world hates you know that it hated me before it hated you. If they persecuted me they will persecute you. If we are living life as Jesus wants us to live it. We are telling others about Him, that He came to give us forgiveness of sin. That Jesus offers eternal life as a free gift, as it says in Ephesians Chapter 2, then we will be hated as He promised. Onward Christian soldiers; let’s win the world to the love of God through Jesus our Lord.
