Be out of favour with those who hate Him.

If we enjoy the favor of the Lord, it is certain that we will be out of favor with those who hate Him. He has plainly warned, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:19). It is useless to suppose that, by acting prudently and circumspectly, we can avoid this. “All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). It is only by unfaithfulness, by hiding our light under a bushel, by compromising the Truth, by attempting to serve two masters, that we can escape “the reproach of Christ” (Hebrews 11:26).

  1. About a year ago I stumbled upon A.W. Pink and have just been in love with his writings ever since. I can think of no other servant of God past or present who can speak on the Sovereignty of God as Pink does. Thanks for this great post, it is very edifying. Keep up the good work Patience!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement.
    I love reading Pink too!
