Today’s Word: 1 John 3:13 [22/07/2021]

Bible Text:

1 John 3:13

Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.

Today’s Word –

The components of the world are made up of the lust of the flesh and the pride of life ( 1 John 2:16), which negates or is contrary to the experience of the new man, who has crossed from the state of being ruled by the flesh, to a realm of being in tune with God via the Spirit (John 4:24).

Moreover, the Holy Bible in the book of Galatians 5:17, reveals to us that that the flesh is always at war with the spirit, and the spirit at war with the flesh (Galatians 5:17), hence it is natural to deduce that a man ruled by the flesh is always at war with the man ruled by the Spirit, vice versa.

Why should we not marvel?

1. Our Lord, Jesus Christ was hated first by the people of the world (John 15:18).

2. We are not of the world, for our citizenship is in heaven (John 17:16).

3. We are led by the spirit and not the flesh (Romans 8:14).

4. Our minds are set above the world, seeking in adoration the one true God (Collosians 3:2).

Our Duty:

1. Remain steadfast in the faith.

2. Be unapologetic over your stand with God.

3. Seek to please God at all times, and do not succumb to the pressures of the world.

4. Keep your minds renewed that you may know the will of God at all times.

God bless you.
