1 John 2:15-27

“Do not love the world.” (vs.15)

The “love” John talks about here is not really love at all, since the “world” he speaks of is not the people around us but the sinful things of this world. To love those things is a selfishness that ignores not only God’s commands but also His love for us. “For if anyone lives the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (vs. 15)

The solution, then, to our “love” for the world is found in receiving the Father’s love. May we continue to live in His love — “remain in him” (vs. 27) — today.
