Do not cling to passing things
Last week one of my lovely blog readers commented in response to my question about what Bible verse had stood out this week. She told me that 1 John 2:15-17 was what she had been reading, so I went and read it to, and thought it would be a great post. (Thanks Allie!)
1 John 2:15-17
Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.
Another verse I think goes with it:
We have been set apart as holy because Jesus Christ did what God wanted him to do by sacrificing his body once and for all.
