How to Live in the World of Trump

Sermon Text:  John 15: 18-21. 18“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19“If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21“But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.,

Point 1: Limit your Intake Matthew 6:22-23. The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23“But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
Point 2: Share your Views Matthew 5:47And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? The Message Bible puts it this way If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run of-the-mill sinner does that.

2. Deescalate
3. Depart

Point 3: Love your Neighbor Matthew 5:43-46 - You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ 44“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46“For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

Point 4: Contact your Representative, Register and Vote

Point 5: Remember who you are Hebrews 13:5b-6- for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,” 6 so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT 
WILL MAN DO TO ME?”

Point 6: Don’t be hurt because you areHatedJohn 15:18-19 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19“If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world
