Hatred

I was wondering today if it would be christian to ask God to exact revenge on a certian individual who hates me and has made mine and many of my colleagues' lives a misery for some time. Of course the answer is obviously no. ("It is mine to Avenge, I will repay, says the LORD")

But it left me frustrated.

And then I read this passage.

"When the world hates you, remember it hated me [Jesus] before it hated you. The world would love you if you belonged to it, but you don't. I chose you to come out of the world, and so it hates you." John 15:18-19

My one question from this is though - does that mean that the people who love us also love Jesus? Or are at least attracted to Him in us? Or does it mean we are inneffective Christians?
