“If the world hates you, keep in mind 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.

Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.” John 15:18-21

Don’t be surprised when the world not only doesn’t believe you, or understand you, but even hates you because of the One you proclaim and represent. Jesus warned His disciples long ago this would happen.

But we’re in Good Company, and His light will shine through, so “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
