You cannot have it all. You can’t have popularity in the world and be planted in Christ. Jesus called you out of conforming to the norm to be conformed to His image.
You have the nerve to stand up and stand out—and they hate you for it.
But you’re in good company. Wouldn’t you say?
If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John 15:19, NIV
