Love Not The World

"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 passeth away, and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." - 1 John 2:15-17 KJV. 
The world has a religion. The world has a church. The world has a belief system. The world has faith. The world has music. The world has pictures. The world has idols. The world has visuals. The world has amusements. The world has entertainments. The world has a philosophy. The world has stories. The world has fables. The world has myths. The world has many books. The world savours the things of men rather than the things of God. The world seeks to indulge the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. The whole world lieth in wickedness. The lust of this world, the world, passeth away. He who DOETH the will of God abideth forever.
What is that will of God?
"Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent." - John 6:28-29 KJV.
The will of God is that we repent and believe on His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord. In the Old Testament God sent prophets, and then John the Baptist, and then God sent His only begotten Son as SAVIOUR. In these last days God has spoken to us by His Son. God has given us full record of His Son through the written word of God, the Scriptures, the Book of books, the Bible. The will of God is that we believe on His Son and NOT PERISH. God is not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should come to repentance, (1 Peter 1:9 KJV), and childlike faith in Christ Jesus the LORD. So, God's will is that we be saved.
God's will is that we come out of the world unto His Son and be ye separate from the evil of this world. To fear God and DEPART from evil. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If ANY man (or woman) love the world, the love of the Father is not in them. Those that truly believe on the Lord are IN the world, but they are not OF the world, and do not LOVE the things of the world. They do not love the things that the world loves, neither the things that Satan would have men give their souls in exchange for in this world. True believers love the things of God, they love the Son, they love the WORD of God, and they obey the Gospel of God's only begotten Son. True believers also preach Christ Jesus the Lord, and are not ashamed of Him nor of His Gospel.
May we pray the Lord for discernment and guidance unto the truth. The very heart of the Gospel reveals the very heart of God. God is not willing that we perish, but that we come to repentance towards Him and to place our unfeigned faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God calls us to repent and believe this Gospel. And through the preaching of this Gospel, Christ is calling sinners to repentance to this very hour. Do not neglect so great salvation.
