Like the Master
If you are like the Master in conduct, you will be no more popular with the world than He was. As long as Christianity is quiet and lets the world go its own way, the world is content to let it alone or even to say polite things about it. But if Christian men and women live up to their professions, fight drunkenness, go against the lust of great cities, preach peace to a nation howling for war, or apply the golden rule to business and social relationships, you will very soon hear a different shout. The disciple who is truly a disciple must share the fate of the Master.
