1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
This is the nutrients facts list for the world, if you will. This is all it has to offer you. Every bit of the worlds enticements fall under 1 of these 3. Lust is never satisfied. Pride brings us down. That which we lust after, we can never attain. Only a life truly offered up to the LORD in worship will ever be complete, whole, satisfied, & content. I recall my days before Christ, how miserable they were, how uninspiring, how unsatisfied I was as I ran after riches, caught up in the stampede of this worlds enticements. BUT then the Fathers love was revealed to me thru Jesus. As I spent time in His word, all I chased after in this world became clear to me. This world was a leech sucking me lifeless. Jesus allowed me to break from these chains! Im not saying, as of today, I dont fall prey to this worlds enticements but I can say, He is faithful to reveal them to me when I do. LORD, open the eyes of my heart to more of You!
