Having eternal impact!

Scripture reading for November 20th:  1st John 2, Psalm 91-92, Proverbs 16

Key Scriptures:  1st John 2:15-17  “Do not love the world or the things in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world–the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life–is not from the Father but is from the world.  And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.”  

John cautioned followers of Christ to hold the things of this world with an open hand.  The human desires for power, material things, and status did not come from God the Father, but from our flesh and the world we live in.  This world and its desires are passing away.  It is very temporary.  As Christ’s disciples, we must seek and obey the will of God.  That is eternal and life indeed!

Faith Confession:  Lord, forgive me for holding on to the things of this world and often following its desires.  Help me today to embrace Your will and obey Your word with joy and eternal hope!  You promise the best is yet to come!  Amen!

Proverbs 16:20  “Whoever gives thought to the Word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.”
