Jesus told us the world would hate us. There is no question we are outnumbered in a lost and dying world. In our own strength and wisdom, we are powerless against the Lost; we can’t possibly know what to do. If, however, we keep our eyes on Christ, if we keep our minds on His Word, He will guide us and reveal His power through us. We must remain attached to the vine if we hope to withstand the great horde. We must stand firm.
