Freedom in Christ – In the world but not of the world.

If you belonged to the world, the world would love [you as] its own and would treat you with affection. But you are not of the world [you no longer belong to it], but I have chosen you out of the world. And because of this the world hates you.

John 15:19 AMP

4You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5They are of the world. That is why they speak from the world’s perspective, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. That is how we know the Spiritb of truth and the spirit of deception.

1 John 4:5-6

Therefore, we believers have the ultimate conundrum. We literally have a foot in each world. The statement below is not a verse per see but I believe it’s tried and true, how about you?

We are IN the world 🌎
but not OF the world 🌍
