Promise of the Day: John 15:19

in Promise of the Day


Today’s promise is John 15:19:

“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”

I AM always with you

We come into this world craving a place to belong. Because we are in the world, we tend to seek belonging in the world. But, if you have been called out of the world by Christ–and follow that calling–you have become a stranger in a strange land. Don’t look for acceptance in the world, or even in the church, because the church seeks to belong to the world. Survival on the hinges depends on an ever growing relationship with the One who walked alone before us. Even Jesus’ closest friends didn’t “get” Him while He was with them. It took the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to them. In Jesus is the true peace of belonging. And in the Spirit He sent to guide us. Apart from Him there is only emptiness and longing.

Heavenly Father, You are all I have in this world. Saturate me with Your Spirit, Lord, that I may feel Your presence and Your comfort every moment of every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Have a victorious day in the Lord!
