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.
– 1 John 2:15
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
The devil has controlled the world and made it full of filth. We humans are all corrupted by Satan and sin against God. Satan uses some means to attract us. When we adore and lust for the worldly things, we will follow Satan and stray from God. But God doesn’t abandon us whilst Satan is corrupting us. He knows that we lead a bitter life in Satan’s affliction, and have no purpose or direction in our lives. He wants to save us out of the abyss of misery. When we are able to live according to God’s word, have reverence and love for God, and treat different people, events and things according to, we will be able to refuse Satan’s deceit consciously, and no longer be afflicted by Satan.
