It’s not a nice thing to know you are disliked or hated, especially when you have done nothing wrong. 1 John 3:13. We see it best in Jesus who also warned His disciples that they too would be hated. The old world ‘then’ & at the time of Noah, just as much as the modern world ‘now’ is opposed to the redeeming work of Christ as it places obstacles in God’s unstoppable way.
And we walk on in love & faith, called by God. As John writes…We have overcome. Not by our own intelligence or strength or wisdom but by God’s foolishness.1 Cor 1:19. By human standards it is a most unflattering & non inclusive way but nevertheless it is the only way to God & it is absolutely free. You can’t buy or earn or fake your way when it comes to God’s undeserving love.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name given under heaven by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12.
