The way to eternal life

By Todd Barrier

In 1 John 2:15, the Bible warns us against loving the things of the world. In verse 16 we are told why. It’s because of what worldly love offers and its consequences. The Bible tells us worldly love offers lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life. What do these things have in common? They all come from the world and are not of the Father (1 John 2:16). The Father promises us eternal life through Jesus Christ (John 3:16). The world offers us a separation from God (Gal. 5:19-21). The sins that come from these lusts bring us death (James 1:15). So, it’s easy to see why God tells us over and over to avoid worldly love and know the difference between that love and Godly love that is taught in the Bible. One brings death and one brings eternal life. Are you listening to His warnings?
