"Do Not Love the World"
"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 in possessions- 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." - 1 John 2:15-17, ESV
Many times, the reason one will not bow the knee and confess Jesus as Lord is simply because they love the world- and all its enticements- to much to let it go.
Courage and Godspeed,
