Hated
















I want the world to hate me.


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.
John 15: 18-19



I want to be the complete opposite of the world. I want to stand out, apart from the world's ways, be hated by their systems, glorify God in everything I do. I want to be hated by the world. To be persecuted just like Jesus. And while I don't exactly want to be hated (after all, who does?), I want to be like Jesus. I want to be chosen out of the world. I want to be a child of the Most High.

Your thoughts?

Grace be with you,

Abby

True. That doesn't mean I or other Christians have to hate you, but the worldy people should -- because you proclaim Jesus.

I use Saxon Math, I'll be a freshman next year -- so then I'll do real Algebra.
