Losing friends and popularity
If you start following Jesus Christ you will lose friends and popularity, but if you keep on following Jesus Christ you will end up alone because people will avoid you. They will reject you and persecute you. The world hates Jesus and if we follow Jesus Christ and obey Him then the world will also hate us.
To follow Jesus Christ is a lonely road. You will not find much fellowship. You will not have many friends. You will be alone with Jesus for most of the time, because to follow Jesus Christ is the straight and narrow lonely road. You will not be popular. You will be hated by all men, because they hate Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is not in your church. He is not with your Christian friends and they are not with Him because if they were with Him, they would also be rejected, they would also be on their own.
Do you have many friends and are you popular? or are you walking the lonely road with Jesus Christ. Not many will follow Jesus and enter His kingdom, but those who do will be alone with Jesus for most of the way.
May Jesus bless you.
