In John chapters 14 and 15, Jesus is saying goodbye to His disciples. Chapter 15, starting with verse 18 continuing to verse 25, Jesus warns the disciple that they will be despised. As followers of Christ, we are often despised. We do not belong to this world. Yet we must live in this world. We are supposed to share the love of Jesus with the world. Yet as human beings, we want to belong. You do belong to the Body of Christ. In your church, in your small groups, this is where you develop friendships with likeminded people. Where you learn to walk with Christ. Where you receive support. Some are fortunate enough to be able to have employment in Christian environments. Most do not and it can be lonely. Loneliness leads to depression. For this reason, I urge you to join a small group Bible study.
