THE GOSPEL ABOVE HATRED

UNDAILY Episode 125


“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 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. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.

JOHN 15, 18-21 (NIV)

 

Conflict and hatred are unwelcome phenomena, yet sometimes they must be addressed. Today's meeting focuses on a significant and challenging aspect of Christian life - the conflict between Gospel values and those promoted by the modern world. In the fifteenth chapter of the Gospel according to John, Jesus is quoted, "When you face hatred from the world, remember that it hated me before it hated you." The "world" Jesus refers to is not just the visible physical environment, but primarily the people and value systems often in opposition to the truths revealed by God. In John's Gospel, the word "world" has multiple meanings, making it crucial to be cautious of the context. Sometimes it refers to part of humanity that has accepted Jesus as Savior, and other times, it denotes a reality rejecting the light and hostile to God's Word.
