Today we hear:
I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth.
Which of us on some level does not have a need to be accepted, to fit in, to belong? It's human. the real question is it what do we want to belong?
Jesus reminds us that if we are truly consecrated to the truth, the world may hate us. But we remain, grounded in steeped in the truth.
We live in this world but we belong to the Kingdom of God.
