“Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4)

A big part of dying to ourselves and successfully following Jesus is deciding that you would be willing to risk rejection by the world and the world system in order to please God. Popularity and peer approval are not fruits of the Spirit. And every Christian generation must decide who is their god — Jesus or the world.

    Thanks Joe for sharing. I believe it will be very easy to see who is a friend of Jesus and who is a friend the world in the very near future. It is going to become costly to worship Him but of course worth it!!
