“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.”
– John 15:19
Jesus, You’ve called me to something higher than the empty pleasures of this world. This world hates me and only wants to keep from You. Help me to recognize its temptations and apathetic attitudes as the true enemies of my spirit.
