If They Persecuted Me, They Will Persecute You Also

26 Mar

John 15:18-25 – 18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’

Living true to the Word is becoming increasingly unpopular in the American culture.  The world today is geared up for the new world religion, which endorses all roads that lead to Rome.  The only intolerance is to state there is only one way.  What did Jesus say?

John 14:6- 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Man has a choice to choose the Lord and Creator’s way, or to believe whatever he wants and choose his own.  Only one leads to the Father and Heaven from our fallen sinful state we are all in.

There a many absolutes in this world, but when it comes to God, they want Him to be whatever it is they want Him to be.  That’s not reality.

Choose to serve the Lord who gave you His Word which happens to also be the number one best seller of all time.  He is the One which created you and paid the penalty for you so you don’t have to.  Times are going to continue to reflect what’s written in John 15:28-25 more and more every day.  The world has nothing to offer you.  Your loving Lord and God has everything to offer to you.  But one has to choose Him.
