“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. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”

Mark 8:36Mark 8:36
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

SO many today are lured by the pursuit of worldly pleasures that they have not the time nor the inclination toward spiritual things. Many people believe the bible, but when it comes to separating themselves apart from the world they cannot because they still love the world, yearn for the pleasures of it, and desires it company over that of God’s provisions. Believing the bible is not living the bible, and you can believe the bible is true, and die and go to hell because one never accepted is premise and the Author and finisher of our faith. There are two things to love, God, and the World which bare a great significance on your eternal state. One brings peace, the other piece. Which will you choose? Have a great Wednesday!
