1 John 2:17 “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
“The only things that are going to last are the things of God. Period. The world is passing away and our days are fleeting. One day, we will be gone from this earth as we know it. You see, we are not citizens of earth trying to get to Heaven. We’re citizens of Heaven sojourning here on earth. This earth is not our home.
Are you living for the pleasures of the flesh or the joy of the Spirit? Are you living for the praise of men or the glory of God? Are you living for today? Or are you living for eternity? Are you living for the things that can be seen or the things that cannot be seen?
One of these days this old world and all of its vaulted culture, proud philosophies, egocentric intellectualism, and godless materialism is going to be forgotten. But he that “doeth the will of God abideth forever.”
Be candid – if all you have is taken away, would you still do the will of God? Why, or why not?”
