A Bucket of Ice Water

In a violent contrast, Jesus moves from telling his followers to abide in his love to saying that the world will hate his followers. Its the bracing kind of statement that feels like you have just had a bucket of ice water thrown in your face. But it is just what we need if we are going to follow him and accomplish his mission. Join us this Lord's Day for a bucket of cold water in the face.
