Why are so many people in the world adverse to Jesus? Of course the primary reason is because satan and his army is doing everything it can to defame His name, but could another reason be that they aren’t as adverse to Jesus as they are to Christians? I once had a co-worker say to me, “Christmas would be a great time of the year if it weren’t for all of the Christians!” After I slapped her up the side of the head, we had a calm discussion, but that was one of the saddest things I’ve ever heard. Paul wrote to the Galatian church, “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” If we are walking in the Spirit, heeding His promptings, the world can’t help but notice. If we are alive in the Spirit but walking in the flesh, the world will definitely notice that too! What do people notice in you? In His last hours, Jesus told His disciples he who loves this life will lose it but he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternity. Naturally there are things in this life that we love, but are they Godly things or worldly things? As Jesus died for us, so must we die to ourselves. Seeds must die and be planted in order to bear fruit. Be a seed that is planted and grows and produces much fruit. Let the world see Him in us that one day we may see Him in them!
