John: Don't be part of this world

(world rejection/ withdrawal from worldly things/ exodus from Egypt/ nonobservance of worldly issues/ detachment from the world)

John 15:18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

18:36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”

John 16,9

I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.

16,33

In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world

17:14

and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

17,16

They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

Is it the same thing if so much of the joy I have in life is being sucked out of the world,
