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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 1 John 2:15-16 KJV
You can’t serve two masters. You will be loyal to one or the other.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24 KJV
Mammon is a spirit that rules over “the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life”. It’s so easy to get caught up in the pleasures of this world we live in. The problem is, that though God has given us all things to enjoy, things can hold us in bondage and cause us to miss God’s best for our lives.
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. Matthew 13:22 KJV
Give your all to Jesus and His Word this year and walk in the blessing of God.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Matthew 13:23 KJV
