Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Promises – Day 323 – 1 John 2:15-17 – Lives Forever – Growing As Disciples

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For everything in the world–the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does–comes not from the Father but from the world.  The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

Love For You

I do not love the world. I do not love the things of this world. I no longer have sinful cravings that come from this life. My eyes are not filled with lust. My heart is not full of boasting. Nothing from this world is motivating my life or filling my desire. What is your desire? What is motivating your life? What has turned you away from pursuing all that this life would offer you? What has given you a new and higher and better perspective? Why is your life on a different course? My love for you has filled me with desire. I want to know you. I want to love you. I want to live my life with and for you. I want to live in an intimate relationship with you. I want to attentively listen to you. I want to follow your guidance. I want to receive your instruction. I want to be able to know and do your will. I want to follow you to where you lead me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. Your love for me and my love for you has turned me away from what is alluring in this life. I will no longer pursue what has no lasting value. I will pursue you and the life you are calling me to live. My heart and mind and life are focused on you. I am living from a heavenly perspective. I want to store up treasure in heaven with you. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. You have very good desires in you. That is because they have come from you. That is true.

Do you know what has happened to you? Do you know where you are on your journey? I am not sure what you mean. Your life of salvation has already begun. My Holy Spirit is in you. You are walking through life with me. Even though life in your current body will end; you will one day come to live forever in heaven with me. My Holy Spirit in you is guiding and guarding you and giving you good work to do, that will last for all eternity. This is the life of salvation I have given you to live now and forever. Thank you, Lord.

Lord, things of this world mean nothing to me. I will not live for the cravings of sin. Instead, my love for you has given me the desire to know and do your will. I will want to please you; in all I do. Thank you that my life of salvation with you has already begun. Amen
