Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 276

  1. “If you belonged to the world…” (John 15:19).

You don’t. It’s hard to imagine Jesus making a point more clearly. You will be mistreated by the world because of Who you are following. If you were following the world, you would be embraced by the world. But you’re not. Surely this is a clear warning against careless behavior. Surely this is a clear call to obedience that establishes your separateness. Surely this is a caution against a pursuit of relevance that causes the road you’re walking to fade from evidence. You ARE different! And the price of such difference will be rejection, not popularity. So if the masses are applauding you, one must wonder at the path they think you’re walking.
