The Word Separating US

Exodus 32:27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

The word of God separates us from people that we love. If you determine to serve God it will cause a division. People thought that Jesus came to bring peace on earth but he said that he came to bring a sword.


Matthew 10:34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

If you decide to follow Jesus then that will make many of your friends uncomfortable. You do not and should not be or act disagreeable. They will figure it out on their own. Be loving and kind. Share your faith. Be stand firm in your love for and service to Jesus!
