LOVE OF THE "WORLD" from George Wion's blog

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. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: this is where, I want you and myself to be very careful, every other thing will pass away, but he that doeth the will of God abides forever" (1 John 2: 15-17).

Jesus says that the "world" chokes God's Word in our heart and hinders the Word from growing and producing fruit (Luke 8: 14).

The world's system is diametrically opposite to the system of the Kingdom of God and both do not co-exist. You can not love both at the same time. Make the Word of God central in your thinking and sufficient for faith and practice and you will continue to grow. Remember that as a man thinks in his heart so he is (proverbs 23: 7).

Your growth is consistent with how far you have moved from the world to the Word. 

Here are some major impedements to our spiritual growth: laziness, the unhealthy association and worldliness.

God bless!!
