The Spiritual ‘Obesity Epidemic’

“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives for ever”
1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

A big problem today is that people are:
Outrageous.
Belligerent.
Expletive.
Selfish.
Egotistic.

We have been fed a diet of:
Self Esteem.
Anxiety.
Technological dependence.
Anti-authoritarian views.
Now is all that matters.

Which is why we desperately need to learn about God’s ways! These can be found in the:
Basic.
Information.
Before.
Leaving
Earth!

This will help us to shape up and be fit for our future-one that God promises to be everlasting.

Prayer
Father, You set before us a different pattern of living. A life that is grounded in You, through faith in Your Son. We desire that You live in us, to give us the power to reject the selfish desires that this world often encourages us to have.
Amen
