Word of the Day... April 30, 2013

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 John 2:15
We are all told all the time “Do not love the things of this world.” But we are often caught in the traps that the world sets up for us.  Like Movies, TV, Video Games,  and music.  If we want to stay close to Jesus there are a few things we need to remember as believers:
Pay very close attention to what you are looking at…. Our eyes are the closest connection to our minds. 

Give greater thought to what the consequences of your sin is instead of the pleasure that you will get from going through with them.  Nobody ever mentions the ugly downside of sin.  

Begin each day in the Word and in prayer.  Take time out for Jesus every day.  When you do you will begin to see growth in your walk with Him.  

During the day tell Jesus that you love Him, even if it is just a whisper.  He will hear it and you will feel Him with you.  It is simply precious!
When you make the choice to stand in faith with the Lord you will begin to see that you are in the world but you are not of it.  Can you imagine the impact we could have on the world if every Christian did something as simple as turning off the TV, Music player, going to movies, and playing video games that do not give glory to the Lord?  We could change the world.  
Sadly, sometimes it is hard to tell a Christian from an unbeliever.  If we took baby steps every day to get closer to Jesus, What a Simply Heavenly world this would truly become.  I hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!!!  God bless you!!!
