Tuesday, April 12th

If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, “A slave is not greater than his master.” If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. John 15:18-21

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

 Today’s Scripture gives us words Jesus spoke to his disciples on the very evening he was betrayed and arrested. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ requires courage and bravery and his words offer much to foster that. Jesus faced opposition throughout his earthly ministry that required courage and bravery on his part. It would not be long after saying the words of our passage that he faced a level of opposition that brought about his crucifixion and death. What an amazing degree of courage and bravery he would need for facing this opposition and the suffering it brought.

Note some of the things from our passage that foster courage and bravery on our part: “it (the world) has hated Me before it hated you;” “you are not of the world;” “I chose you out of the world;” “If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you;” “all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake;” and “they do not know the One who sent Me.” Persecution isn’t automatic at every turn, but it is something we need to be prepared for. From Jesus’ words we can see the great desire he had for us to be prepared for facing any opposition we experience with courage and bravery. 

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I do know the one who sent you and I know you have sent me too. I am no longer of the world but I am in the world to be an agent of redemption. Thank you for your courage and bravery that secured redemption for the world. Help me go forward with you fully prepared to face with courage and bravery all you call me to face. May my life contribute to others becoming recipients of redemption. Amen!
