God’s Word For Today and a devotional thought from Pastor Steve:
“If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me before it hated you.” (John 15:18)
“The world” here points to all that battles against God, including the devil, our sinful selves, and those in the world that follow the devil. But keep in mind: Christ has overcome the world. He has defeated sin, death and the devil. So when the world hates you, it is coming from those that have already lost.
