With God, Without God
Philippians 1:29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake. . . . #Bible
Jesus saved us and brought us into the Family of God, into the Kingdom of God. We are no longer loyal to the world, but our loyalty is to God.
Naturally the world hates us because we don’t act like them anymore, we act like Jesus.
We have become light to this world exposing their sinful actions, their sinful lifestyles.
The Righteousness of Christ is upon us and it causes the world to either convert to Christ or reject Him. They know that according to God’s Word they are going to hell, they are the walking dead, and they attack, they persecute.
But God has empowered us with the Gospel, which enables us to suffer the hardships, as well as enjoy the blessings. Why? Simply to show the world their choice, heaven or hell, with God or separated from God. With God, without God.
Joh 3:16-18 For in this way God loved the world, so that he gave his one and only Son, in order that everyone who believes in him will not perish, but will have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world in order that he should judge the world, but in order that the world should be saved through him. 18 The one who believes in him is not judged, but the one who does not believe has already been judged, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.
