Sermon #31 in our series through the Gospel of John called “Who Is Jesus?” In this sermon, Dr. Andrew White preaches John 15:18–16:4a. In this text, Jesus encourages His followers even as they prepare for persecution and difficulty. In a world that is hostile against God and His followers, we can expect to be hated in the same way the world hated Jesus. But there is hope: Jesus is sending the Holy Spirit to help us. Therefore, we can stand strong and take heart! If the world hates you, remember that it hated Jesus first and the Holy Spirit is here to help His followers navigate times of hostility and suffering.
