Facing the World as Jesus Did

John 15:18-25 NRSV

If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world – therefore the world hates you. John 15:19

Perhaps in some of the strongest words used by Jesus, we are reassured that in choosing us, Jesus has equipped us to overcome hate.
