1 John 2:15-17
The verses in 1 John are a timely warning for us during the “Christmas Season”. The world has turned this time into a free for all of materialism and partying. John says not to love the world. If you love the world, the Father is not in you. That is a huge and devastating statement. John did not tell us we can stand with one foot in the world and one in the kingdom, loving both. Love the Father or love the world. The Kingdom abides forever along with those who do God’s will. Everything else passes away.
