Do Not Love The World


"Do not love the world or anything in the world.
If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father
is not in him.
For everything in the world- the cravings of sinful
man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what
he has and does- comes not from the Father but
from the world.
The world and desires pass away, but the man who
does the will of God lives forever."

1John 2: 15-17

We can live in this world but not of this world. We are pilgrims here in a strange land of sin and wickedness and our true home is with our Father in heaven which our Lord Jesus Christ has prepared for us in advance.

I was watching TV this afternoon and they were showing the attractions of the world and these verses came to mind.

Hi Pia,
I will pray for you my sister. Just focus on God's love for you so that you will feel His warmth and protection. When Christ died on the cross, He has given us everything for our victorious Christian life. Just focus on His promises and not on your external situation right now. Later on, you will see that God's truths will prevail in your life and the lies of Satan will be exposed and vanquished. Trust God and He will give you the desires of your heart. Thanks and God bless.

Hi Amrita,
Yes, the world has become so evil that is why the Lord is admonishing us to separate ourselves from its ways. We can live in this world but not of this world. Let us be the harbinger of truth and love to this world. Thanks for your visit and God bless. Please do my tag.

I'd say that the lack of love for this one world and a paranoid stress placed upon an alleged other world beyond is exactly the reason why this planet is the mess it is. As long as believers - who are, unfortunately, still a majority of the world population - will keep on thinking of themselves as creatures passing through and destined to something better, then this planet shall never be the great place it could be.
