In, but not Of

Yes, that old "in but not of" again. It seems like a cliche: "Christians are in the world but not of the world." But what did Jesus mean when he prayed, "They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world" and "As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world"? We will seek to come to grips with that this Lord's Day.
