John 15:19 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "If ye were of the world," (ei ek tou kosmou ete) "If you all were of the world," of the present world order, still unregenerate, without any love for the Father at all, 1Jn 2:15; which you are not, Joh 17:16.

2) "The world would love his own:" (ho kosmos an to idon ephilei) "The world would have loved its own," in a fickle way, with a fickle love.

3) "But because ye are not of the world," (hoti de ek tou kosmou ouk este) "However, because you all are not out of the world," in your nature and disposition, Joh 17:16.

4) "But I have chosen you out of the world," (all' ego ekseleksamen) "But because I have called and chosen you all out of and away from the present world order," of things, Joh 15:16; Joh 15:26-27; Joh 17:6; Joh 17:9. I have called you to live a separated life of sanctification and service, Rom 12:12; Their hatred and persecution should bring you joy, Mat 5:10-12.

5) "Therefore the world hateth you." (dia touto misei humas ho kosmos) "On account of this the world hates you all," as individuals, and as my chosen New Covenant church. It hates you with a continuing hate, Joh 17:14.
