Jesus prays his High Priestly Prayer for his disciples in John 17:14. From this verse we talk about being in the world, but not of the world. It means that while we live here, we are to think and act like Jesus. But Jesus says the disciples are not of the world any more than He is of the world! Jesus was radically different from the world and from worldly church leaders (Pharisees and Sadducees). May the Lord help us to be in and actively involved in the world and remarkably different at the same time!
