Do Not Love The World
As Pastor Tony begins his 3 week sabbatical, Pastor Lisle challenges us to see the goodness of God in the command given in 1 John 2:15-17 – Do Not Love the World. Unlike John 3:16 where God loves the world, the context of 1 John defines the world as a system of beliefs that is hostile toward God. Here we are commanded to not find our passion in this system, because God does not want us to waste our lives. Pastor Lisle concludes with 4 questions for each of us to take a close look inside ourselves to answer:
What am I passionate about?
Is there something in this world that is attractive and I am pursuing?
Am I being influenced with someone who loves the world
Have I informed the right people that can help me in this fight?
