*Christians And The World*

22

*CHRISTIANS AND THE WORLD* *If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world…the world hates you (Jn. 15:19; NKJV).*No one truly belongs to Jesus that is not hated by the world. The reason for this is that the world system runs contrary to Christianity. For example, the world believes in being smart. Jesus commands His followers to be honest. The world system encourages retaliation, but Jesus commands forgiveness. The world system is driven by self-centredness. Christianity is about selflessness.Wisdom in Christianity is seen as foolishness in the world system. The world system sees simplicity as stupidity, takes forgiveness for weakness and operates with oppression, brutality, prejudice, blackmail, manipulation and persecution. But Jesus asks His disciples to let go. When you are committed to Jesus, you should expect open or secret persecutions.Things are getting more difficult for those who want to stay true to their Saviour at this time. Due to this, many Christians are beginning to lower their standard. To escape being persecuted, and to go with the flow, a lot of Christians have technically denied Christ. They go the way of the ungodly and cast their pearls before pigs. Even among 'Christians', when you show ‘too much’ commitment to the things of God, you must be ready to be called names. Dear friend, have you made up your mind to cut off from every attachment to worldliness? Is your heart still with God? Is this world all that you now pursue? There is really nothing worth losing one’s soul for on this earth. Nothing will last forever on earth. It’s better to be called a fool on earth than to be a fool forever in hell. There’s no sitting on the fence. Decide where you want to be today. May you make the right choice! In Jesus name,Prayer:* O God; help me to break free from every form of worldliness! In Jesus name!can i hear a louder amen ,to receive it from God *Evangelist stanley*
