We live in a world of evil but, we have no fear because every day we take up the cross of Jesus Christ (Matthew 16:24).
Jesus says: “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil” (John 7:7).
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:18-19).
“Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you” (1 John 3:13).
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
“They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them” (1 John 4:5).
“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him” (1 John 4:6-9).
