Summary: So long as they hated Jesus, they will hate you and they will never choose you over their own.
May the peace of the Lord be with you.
Topic: THE WORLD WOULD NEVER LOVE YOU
John 18:39-40 King James Version (KJV)
39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
Beloved, you are not of this world but of the Kingdom of God. You are just a traveller, journeying through this world to your final destination, your home.
The world would never choose you, honour or favour you over it's own. The world would always favour it's own, even though what it does shall come back to bite it real hard.
The Jews chose Barrabas the robber, murderer, cheat and liar over Jesus the healer, preacher, teacher, comforter and guide.
Beloved no matter how good you are to the world, it will never be good to you in return but will give you up for destruction to protect its own.
Don't find it strange when the world gangs up against you at your work place or home or anywhere you find yourself.
Beloved, if the world accepts you and is very warm to you and honours you, says yes to you and fights for you, then you have to check your Christianity because for sure there is something wrong and you might be heading to a woeful end without knowing. You might actually by satisfying the devil and worshipping him without knowing. *BE ALERT* for the devil is subtle.
The sad part is when some fellow Christians who are supposed to be brothers and sisters in Christ, joins the world to punish you, ridicule you, destroy you, distract your focus and kill you.
But in all these, never give up, surrender it all to Jesus, who has gone through all these and understands how it really feels for your own brothers and priests to join the world to finish you.
Give it all to Jesus who is the only Saviour who can deliver you from all these attacks and set ups and He alone can exalt you and honour you.
All these things that you have been through, are going through or will go through, are not strange and a waste of time but part of the "all things that are happening for your good because you love God and have been called according to His purose" as said in Romans 8:28.
*IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. The world hated Him and they will hate you too but if you live for Him, He will give you victory and eternal joy here in this world and also in heaven when you crossover to your home when you go to sleep.
Prayer: Father please strengthen me to carry on in this world and overcome all the attacks in Jesus name. Amen.
