It stands to reason: If you love flowers,you’ll hate weeds. If you love cleanliness, you’ll hate filth. If you love health,you’ll hate germs. If you love God,you will hate sin.
What does the bible mean when it say’s “love not the world“? Are there not good things in the world? Sure there are. There is God’s creation for one, like the mountains,trees and rivers. These are good things. When the scripture says, “do not love the world” it is speaking of the “world system that is presided over by satan. The bible says that satan is the prince and power of the air. He influences those that don’t follow Christ and he influences the world system.
We are not to allow the ungodly,secular, humanist system to cause us to be conformed to their way of thinking as Romans 12:2 explains. We are not to love the world because of the character of the world-what it is. Number two, because of the corruption of the world-what it does and number three, because of the condemnation of the world-where it’s headed.
I then ask the question,”If we’re not to love this world and give our all to this world then who do you suppose that we should love and give our all to? Jesus answered that question by saying, “You shall Love the Lord your God with all your heart,with all your soul, and with all your mind.
Don’t share your heart with the world. God deserves your complete devotion.
