We can often forget just how at odds the world is with the message of Christ. We try to live our lives halfway following the world and halfway following Jesus. For many of us, it is a daily struggle to detach ourselves from the ways of the culture and give all to God. We need to realize that to be Christian is to not be of this world. Christ tells us this when he says:
"If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you (John 15:19)."
Indeed, the world hates Christians. It always has and always will. This is the hard fact many of us still need to accept.
But if the world hates us, what should our response be?
We should hate the world back!
