Live in the Messiah [Jesus]
1 John 2:15-16 (ISV)
15 Stop loving the world and the things that are in the world. If anyone persists in loving the world, the Father’s love is not in him.
16 For everything that is in the world—the desire for fleshly gratification, the desire for possessions, and worldly arrogance—is not from the Father but is from the world.
John reminds each and every one of us that we are passing through this life and that we should not be focusing too much on worldly things. People who fall in love with the world have forgotten all about our Heavenly Father.
As you study and focus on these words today let me inspire you. Take a moment and think of the foods, clothing and other stuff that is constantly filling your life. Have you become so addicted to it that you cannot move past it? I must be honest there are many things that I also cling to but with the Lord Jesus’ help, I want to stop my compulsions.
Turn away from worldly love and turn back to the Father God in Jesus name.
Heavenly Father today we pray that You will touch our lives and help us to persist in loving You and not the world. Keep us from looking for fleshly gratification and the desire for possession. Help us not to become arrogant and worldly. Renew our minds and souls in Jesus Name, Amen
