Love Not The World

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15

Just like when Satan deceived Adam and Eve into falling for the lusts of this world, Satan is also trying to deceive us. He wants you to believe you need money, power, and fame to be special. But you are already famous in Gods eyes. Your Heavenly Father knows your name and every hair on your head.

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 1 John 2:16

As Jesus said the Spirit is strong but the flesh is weak. We must resist the temptations of this world because they are a trap. Once you fall into that trap you may never get back out. Satan uses our lust as the bait. We lust for money, power, sex, possessions, idols, ect. Things that provide temporary satisfaction but death to your soul

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 1 John 2:17

As Jesus said what does it profit to gain the whole world and lose your soul? This world is temporary, it will pass away and everything in it. We need to prepare for the eternal life and not the temporary life. It will take some patience and obedience but in the end there is victory through Jesus Christ Amen
