TOPIC: Love Not The World (2)

2 Chronicles 17–18; John 13:1–20

Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Putting your trust in your possessions instead of the Giver is one tragedy that can happen to man.

May you have the mind that is willing to do the will of God in the Name of Jesus.

1 John 2:15-17

15 Don’t love this evil world or the things in it. If you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 This is all there is in the world: wanting to please our sinful selves, wanting the sinful things we see, and being too proud of what we have. But none of these comes from the Father. They come from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and all the things that people want in the world are passing away. But whoever does what God wants will live forever.


Today, I want us to read another version of verse 16 of the fire scripture from the New Living Translation Bible; “For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.”

This is a simple but straightforward explanation of the things that are in the world. Do you crave for everything you see? How much of physical pleasure do you entertain as a Christian? The Bible says, he who lives in pleasure while alive is already a dead fellow.

The pride of life talks about when you’re consumed by the amount of possessions, that you have, your achievements, and those things that make you demonstrate a high level of superiority above others. What do you have that does not come from God?

The Bible says that the life of a man does not consists what he has. We brought nothing to this world and we surely will go with nothing. What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit eternity? It is all as a result of when a person is engulfed in all of “these” while God and His Kingdom takes the rear position. Matthew 6:33 counsels us to “seek first the Kingdom of God.”

Do you remember the story of the rich fool in the Bible. He rejoiced over his bountiful harvest but failed to honor God, the One who made this possible. He was so consumed with self to the extent that heaven required his life from him that day. Unfortunately, he has control over the worldly things but not over his soul. Hence, he lost all, both on earth and in eternity! This remains a valid example and a lesson for us all!

The world and all that’s in it has no eternal value, it will hinder you from doing the will of God, and make you lose heaven. Are you guilty of all these three things?

You can still retrace your steps and make amends. Tomorrow may be too late. Your salvation first, then read, study and meditate on God’s Word. Live it, and continue to pray against the power of vain glory and every evil desire that can rubbish your life and destroy your eternal destiny.

Associate with godly people, flee negative influences. Let the Holy Spirit be your teacher and mentor. Jesus is Lord!

1. Spirit of pride, die in my life, in the Name of Jesus.
2. I refuse and reject friendship with the world in the Name of Jesus.
3. I shall not be an enemy of God in the Name of Jesus.

4. I dethrone flesh in my life and enthrone Jesus as the Lord of my life in the Name of Jesus.
5. I shall not slaughter my eternity on the altar of worldly affairs in the Name of Jesus.
6. Power to overcome Satan, the flesh, and the world, possess me now, in the Name of Jesus.
7. O God arise, and help me to die to self and sin in my life in the Name of Jesus.
