1 John 2:17
...The world passeth away and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.
In today's society it appears as though it has become more materialist than every before; today's text issues a stern warning about putting earthly things before God and His will. The question now becomes, which do you choose earthly things or the things of God? God is everlasting so is His salvation; therefore, I encourage all to seek God first, commit to doing His will and He will provide all the earthly things that you need.
All who believe are urged to separate themselves from this world and it immoral standards as they are contrary to God standards and His righteousness. This is because this world is currently being controlled by Satan and we are no match for him in our own strength. Satan make things of this world look glorious and everlasting; rest assure they are temporary and will be cast away as chaff in a fire. Only God and the things of Him last forever.
Reflect with me on many of the things that existed generations ago no longer exist; then what does this say for the world and the things therein? It will pass away; when Christ return He then will establish a new earth and a new heaven as the old earth would have passed away.
The final decision rests upon this question, do I want to spend eternity with God or in the lake of fire with Satan; a heavenly or an earthly choice?
