Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 278

  1. “for they do not know the One who sent Me” (John 15:21).

Here is the line that reveals the source of evil. They do not know God. Like Paul’s words in Romans 1, this lack of knowing God propels people down the nearest destructive path available to them. To not know God leaves one with no center to life, no understanding of its beginnings, and no direction for its future. To not know God proves catastrophic, not just in the day of Judgment, but every day, as choices are made with only a self-made understanding of life. Do we despise them? pity them? or do we sacrifice ourselves so that they might somehow know Him? How we answer such a question will likely shape how we manage ourselves in the midst of the persecution they inflict.
