I Will Go The Distance

Subtitle: The Rocks Are Crying out

John 15:18-25

18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.

23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

I have entitled this today: I Will Go The Distance: Subtitle: The Rocks Are Crying Out.

This morning, if you are a believer in Christ, then you are part of His vine.

If you are a believer in Christ, this morning, then you are a branch that is on His vine.

If we are on His tree, then we ought to be bearing good fruit.

If we bear good fruit, then the world will see what we are offering is good to eat.

Ps 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

When we have tasted and have seen that the Lord is good, and we know that we have refuge in Him, the enemy is not happy.

Anything that Satan can do, he will do, to hinder our walks with the Lord.

We need to remember when Satan comes against us that we are not His property but we are the property of Jesus Christ.

When we are purchased by His Blood and living for Him and not letting self take over, we will win the battles that we go through.

Now let’s go to our opening Scripture:

John 15:18

18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

The world really does not like you when you are a bond servant to Jesus.

The world hated Jesus and if we keep on talking about the change that Jesus has made in our lives, then this world will hate you also.

The world will hate us because Satan hates us, if they are not serving God then they are a servant to Satan.

John 15:19

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

If you are of the world, this morning, then you are looking for a way other than Christ and His Cross, the world loves you.

This world loves it’s own, but because you are not of this world, you refuse to accept their worldly view as your answer to the problems that you face in life.

Verse 19 says, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

1Pe 2:9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
