Daily Devotional “The Love God Hates”
September 13, 2023
“Do not love the world, nor the things in the world.
If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
And the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:15-17).
If you love the world, you’re engaging in a love God hates.
Satan, from the very beginning of his rebellious activities, has been developing an invisible spiritual system of evil designed to oppose God and enslave people to sin.
The apostle John identified that system as “the world,” and warned us not to love it.
Satan has had many centuries to develop his evil system, so it is very effective on those who reject Christ.
In John 8:44 He identified certain unbelievers as children of their father, the devil, who is a murderer and the father of lies.
That’s how completely unbelievers are identified with Satan.
As a believer, you are identified with God. You have been delivered out of the domain of darkness and placed into the kingdom of Christ (Colossians. 1:13).
You are from God and have overcome the evil one because the Holy Spirit who indwells you is greater than he who controls the world (1 John 4:4).
Sadly, Christians sometimes flirt with the very things they’ve been saved from. Don’t do that.
Satan and his system have nothing to offer you. They are doomed! First John 2:17 says, “The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God abides forever.”
•If you’ve been flirting with the world, ask God’s forgiveness.
•Praise God that someday Satan and his evil system will be vanquished.
Read the epistle of 1 John, noting the contrasts between the children of God and the children of Satan.
