John 15 vs
24》》” If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father..”》》ISV》
AS we are admonished to emulate the life of Jesus Christ, it is expedient we learn from some of His experiences when He came to this earth. He never took it easy dealing with people whiles fulfilling His assignment. The holy scriptures says He was tempted in all ways yet without sin. They tempted Him by hating Him. We learned two reasons why they hated Him. Another reason is that Jesus spoke differently, not as the Scribes and the Pharisees did. And His speech was backed by authority (Matt 7:29).
He spoke as inspired by the Father. But because the people were carnal they took most of His words as blasphemy. Beloved, many will hate you when you speak in line with God’s word. Many will think you are proud and question who do you think you are. However, like Jesus, their hatred couldn’t stop what and how He spoke; so refuse to speak normal. Speak as God’s word has said not as the economy, society, family background or the environment desires. Another reason is that Jesus experienced glorious success/results in His ministry which caused many multitudes to follow Him.
Due to this, they were afraid of Jesus’ success. They thought all the people would forsake them and believe in Him (John 10:42). This led them to crucify Him. Hatred is a bad spirit that you should never entertain. It blocks your positive sense from thinking right.* It activates your senses in a negative way. Fight hatred. *Cherished one, you can’t really stop people from hating you, but you can stop yourself from hating others.Because the love of God is shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit in you (Romans 5:5). Be sober and see people with the eye of love and embrace the good in them. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Father of all true everlasting love, I thank You for loving me and not hating me. I therefore follow Your example to love others as You empower me. I refuse to let hatred lead my life. I offer the love You shed abroad in my heart to my world of contact in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!_
