Not Of This World

Wow what depth in this quote.  However, sadly to say this is true. We the church in some cases have lowered the bar of scripture.  I hear the phrase, “It doesn’t take all that to walk with God.” But if we are to have real intimacy with God then we must realize holiness is required. 

We must forsake the sinful things of this world.

1John 2:15-17 says, “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 lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

I John 2:15‭-‬17 NKJ

So Christians there must be a quick break up with the world so we can find our true love, “JesusChrist.”  Christianity is a lifestyle and life changinging journey.  When we accept Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord we are saved at that moment.

However, this is when the work of a true love relationship begins.  We have confessed our love and devotion to Jesus now we must show action of a true love relationship with him.  Talk is cheap.  

What Does A True Love Relationship Look Like?

Well, Jesus said to us, “If you love me, then keep my commandments.”  I love this.  Jesus didn’t ask us to be perfect but he asked us to make a concious effort to live according to his word.  So many people believe that the Christians have to live a life of perfection…wrong!  

Jesus understands that we will never be perfect here on earth.  Jesus understands that we need grace but he also understands that we can live according to his standards.  Jesus wants us to make a real effort not to commit sin. 

It amazes me how many people can be committed to what they want but when it comes to Jesus they say, “Well no ones perfect, God knows my heart.”

Yes, God knows that we are not perfect and he also knows if we are not truly committed to live life according to his will then we won’t be successful.  

We must accept this fact, “We are not of this world.” We are Believer’s.  The Bible says that everyone that has confessed Jesus Christ as Lord is saved and not of this world.
