World Warnings

today's reading.
1 John 2:15-29    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...

We get a number of warnings about the world from 1 John 2:15-29. John tells us straight up that we are not to love the world or the things in the world. He also warns us about being influenced and led astray by worldly people and thinking. Now right along with these warnings, John lets us know that we aren't fighting this battle alone. We have the means to deal with the world and its temptations because we have the Holy Spirit living in us.

So what did 1 John 2:15-29 show you about how the Holy Spirit lives and works in us? What did you take away from this passage about focusing on the Truth and staying in fellowship with the Son and the Father? Tami W.
