Good Morning my friends,
Christians are warned not to love the world-but what is worldliness? Some have misunderstood it. Worldliness is an attitude, a spirit, an atmosphere that permeates the whole of human society. Living of the world is taking the easy way out. It’s bowing down to society and all it has to offer. It’s married men flirting, it’s married women fantasizing about movie stars, it’s the love of money, it’s putting your desire to advancement of career before your family. It is an attitude that puts self first and ignores God and His commandments. I could go on and on to include alcohol, drugs, pornography, surfing the internet and more. If you wouldn’t do those things in front of your spouse or Jesus then it’s worldly. It’s horizon is this present world, and it never gives a thought to God or to eternity. Worldliness exhibits itself in a thousand different ways; in habits, in selfish pleasures, in a grasping for material things, in driving ambition, in exalting oneself at the expense of others. We must avoid everything God has labeled sinful and that there can be no doubt. Some elements of daily life aren’t necessarily sinful in themselves; they only become sinful if they are abused. Pleasure isn’t always wrong–unless it is abused. Ambition is an essential part of true character; but when abused, it can destroy you. Be on guard, lest a spirit of worldliness creep into your life. I’ve been guilty of most of these things in my past.. I justified my wrongdoing in my mind by making excuses. If you have to convince yourself that there is nothing wrong with what you’re doing then what you’re doing is worldly and wrong.. The Bible warns, “Do not love the world or the things in 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)
My CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU… Turn away from the world and worldly ways. Seek God in all you do.
I hope you all have a MAGNIFICENT day… Blessings and much love….D
ALWAYS…..Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
