When i was growing up i can remember hearing about "Worldly" things. In John 15:18-27 Jesus talks about the World and that the world hates Him and that the world will hate His followers. Seems like a great way to start a movement right? Just tell your people that if you follow you will be hated and persecuted and the world will be changed. I really don't know why anyone would sign up for that unless this stuff was the real deal. One thing that is so interesting is "Who" it was that Jesus says is the world. During the years of all of our lifespans we have heard that the world is the "Bad" things and "Bad" people. However Jesus defines the "world" as the very moral Pharisee. I really believe that the most worldly of people are some of the millions of people in the pews each Sunday that act as if they are the morality police. I find myself being very worldly yet still maintaining a smile and a seemingly kind word. So this Sunday we are going to talk about the World, and persecution and why this is just the message that God used to change the world. See ya Sunday.
