“If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father also.” (John 15:22-23) Scripture Reading – Romans 1:18-32 The world doesn’t know God even though they have been told about Him. God has been actively revealing Himself through creation, the conscience, and Christ. Creation declares God’s glory (Ps. 19:1). Our consciences were created to know God’s Law since it is written on our hearts (Rom. 2:15). Enough evidence has been provided, so that we can recognize the one true God. Even though we have enough evidence that the Father sent the Son into the world, Jesus’ coming was a grace of God giv

“But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me.” (John 15:21) Scripture Reading – John 8:31-47 Jesus not only prepares His disciples for the cruel persecution that will befall them, but He also identifies the root cause of that persecution.

As He did earlier (John 13:16), Jesus reminds them that they are not greater than He is. Our model of humility is Christ Himself who left heaven to come to earth as a servant, and seek and save the lost. He suffered great humiliation as He bore our curse on the cross. Christ, who was in heaven, was willing to subjec

“If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (John 15:19) Scripture Reading – Titus 2:11-14 When we think about living in a worldly manner, we tend to define worldliness in outward forms. Worldly people wear mini-skirts, drink alcohol, or watch movies. It’s comfortable for us to define people as either inside or outside of our group, based on what we deem to be appropriate behavior. But that’s not what the Bible means by “the world”. It has a much deeper meaning. The world is humanity’s outlook apart from God, and how their thoughts and actions are enslaved to Satan. Bei
