The Bible is very plain. Who we serve in life matters. We cannot call ourselves believers and then follow after the world. We must decide. Will we serve God or will we serve the things of this world?
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Satan is the one who is currently running the world. The earth is his dominion.
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Every believer was at one time under the control of Satan. He controlled our minds, our hearts and our spirits. Not so after one comes to Jesus. We must decide as believers, who we will follow. Will we follow Jesus and live a life that honors Him or will we chose to follow the old path we were on before we accepted Jesus.
The Bible is plain. The road to holiness begins with a surrendering of your will to God’s. Today, make it your goal to surrender to God’s will in all you do.
Prayer: Father, help me to live a life that will bring honor to the Son. May all that I do in life show others my love for you. May I live my life for you and lead other people to you. Thank you for saving me and giving to me eternal life. I pray in Jesus name, amen.
