“I have given them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world – just as I Myself do not belong to the world.”
John 17:14 CJB

“I don’t ask You to take them out of the world, but to protect them from the Evil One.”
John 17:15 CJB
So,what we get to do is be a reflection of the glorious Light of the LORD and His salvation! We don’t have to be like the world, just in it. Use every opportunity to change the conversation to talk about the LORD!
“Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.”

Have a blessed day knowing that wherever you go and whatever you do, the LORD is right there with you! Let His presence be known and shown to those around you! Have a blessed day.
