“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.”
“OUR” Father, we belong here, but you picked us out of the world to “BE” Yours. That’s why they hate us. If the mob rules against You, surely they will persecute us also. They would not be guilty of anything, but they have no excuses had they not heard You and “BE”lived the life of Your creation.
Lord, You have done a miracle making us not guilty of “OUR” sin. That’s why they hate You without reason. It is Your Spirit of truth that is telling us we “BE”long to You. We are Yours and You are “OUR” Father. It is Your Word that judges them.
Because men do not believe You, they condemn themselves, convicted of guilt in their rejection of who You are.
Your Spirit of truth comes to guide us to You. He tells us what is coming next. All that “BE”longs to You “OUR” Father is to bring glory by giving us Your Word and making it known to us.
In a little while “OUR” grief will “BE” turned to joy!
You chose us to love one another and know Your business in asking in Your name to bear fuit among the Nations.
No greater love than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. We obey Your Word so that “OUR” joy may “BE” full and completed in us.
