Knowing the One and Only - Opposition
Jesus said to His disciples, "if the world hates you keep in mine 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...if they persecuted Me, they would persecute you also....They will treat you this way because of My name, for they do not know the One who sent Me. He who hates Me hates My Father as well" (excerpts from John 15:18-25)
