God or the World

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

1 John 2:15-16 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. For all that is in the world— the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life —is not from the Father but is from the world.

We always have choices to make. Our priorities are shown through our choices. Choosing a sports event over fellowship with other believers in worship to God, fighting for the one to make a purchase of something instead of helping others, not giving to others over wanting to buy more and more stuff for ourselves, and on and on. We cannot love both God and the things of this world. We can enjoy the things of this world but, if we’ve given our lives to God, if we say we love Him, we put Him first above all things. This is more than lip service. This shows in our choices, our actions, our inactions and in our words. Where is our heart? What do our actions and words show about where our heart is?
