Do Not Love The World, Says Who?

I’m Blogging Through The Bible with Courtney Joseph over at Women Living Well and today, we are reading 1 John, Chapter 2.

So, does this mean we can’t love our homes, our cars, or our boats?  This is where it can get tricky in your relationship with the Lord.  Just how much are we willing to GIVE up to have a relationship with God?

Do not love the world or the things in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (1 John 2:15)

Absolutely!  We are to put God in front of all of our material possessions as well as things of this world.

He should be what we FOCUS on, not about what we can buy next.

As a Christian, it’s hard not to get caught up in the worldly way; however, when we spend more time with God, our relationship with him grows deeper and deeper.  When that happens, there’s no way we won’t put him ABOVE ALL THINGS!

Ponder on this over the weekend and see if you have any things you love in this world!
