Key Verse

“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” (1John 2:15).

Text — John 2:15-17


Erwin W. Lutzer said that, “It is better to love God and die unknown than to love the world and be a hero.” The greatest threat to the Christian life is not persecution from the world, but seduction by the world. The Bible warns us not to love  the world and its allurements. Remember Lot’s wife whose heart was in Sodom when she ought to be fleeing it. The case of Demas who became an apostate is also a sad one. A Christian should not love this present evil world because it is enmity with God (James 4:4). Soon, the world will pass away but those who do the will of God will live with God forever in His kingdom.

Youths who indulge in immorality, nude dressing, worldly music and examination malpractices are lovers of the world. As Christians, we are called unto holiness. We must shun every appearance of sin such as pornography, certificate forgery, and anything that does not glorify God. You can repent today from every form of worldly pleasures by accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour.


Shun every appearance of sin.


 Love God and not the world.

Prayer for today

Help me, O God, to forsake the world, in Jesus’ name.
