When the World Opposes You


David Collister - Jun 2, 2013

This week we look at a passage where Jesus says to his followers, “You do not belong to the world…that is why the world hates you.”

These are strong words, no? What makes them even more interesting is they come just hours before Jesus heads irrevocably toward the cross. In other words, he knows his time with his disciples is short, so he’s choosing his words carefully.

Why would Jesus want his followers to understand that they’ll come across opposition, and what does he want you to know about it? This Sunday, we continue our study through the book of John to find out!
