To hate someone is to have strong feelings of dislike or animosity towards them. Hate stems from emotions of fear, jealousy, envy, rivalries, by insults real and imagined, money, and or the feeling of a loss of self control. There is so much hate in the world that its all you see on T.V shows, news, even in a place of worship there may be found hate. There is nowhere in this world that one may go and not find hate, no matter how loving he or she is.
Why Does The World Hate You?
If you have decided to follow Jesus, you are going against the grain of a world full of evil. You represent Christ, that's why you are hated. No one wants to hear that he or she is a sinner. No one wants to be told how to live. The world is telling you that you can do anything you want, including murder, but its not so. There is a price to pay for sin. Jesus paid it on the Cross, but must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free? Your own family will hate you (Mathew 10:36). "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.(John 15:18-19).
Be Of Good Cheer
Things may look dark, but we walk by faith not by sight. Trust and believe in God. The world is opposed to God's truth because its system is run by Satan, he is the author of deception. We are God's workmanship. Keep spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ no matter what. "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me (John 15:20-21). These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33). Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58).
