Today we’ll read Deuteronomy chapter 8, John 15 and Psalm 54, from the New English Translation.
May God bless the reading of His Word.
Jesus had a good reminder for us today. He said, starting in verse 18 of John 15, “If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. But because you do not belong to the world, because I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.”
Have you experienced that? Have you been laughed at or scorned because you are a believer? Consider that a good thing.
Back in the late 60s, early 70s there was a bumper sticker or t-shirt or something that asked the question, “If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?”
My friend, let’s give the world a mountain of evidence! Let there be no doubt that we believe, and that this belief has made a difference in our lives.
Until tomorrow, may God bless you richly. I’m Steve Webb.
