1 John 2:17 GNT
“The world and everything in it that people desire is passing away; but those who do the will of God live forever.”
Everyday that God has given us is a new opportunity for us to be able to testify about Him.
Sometimes even after experiencing the love of God, we are just satisfied living for ourselves. We need to break out of this. We need to remember that someone else told us about Jesus and His love for us and that is what brought us of knowing God personally. And this is God’s desire for us to be His hands and feet and voice in someone else’s life.
1 John 2:17 says that this world and everything that is in it is passing away. But only those who do the will of God will live forever.
What is the will of God?
It is God’s will for everyone of us to be to saved from our sin and live and not perish.
God’s will for our life doesn’t finish by just receiving Him into our lives, it is a continual process for the entire life and for all of eternity believing and confessing that it is not about our life but His will over our life.
So often we reduce salvation to just a mere prayer and believe that we got a ticket to heaven, but the Bible mentions that to follow Jesus we need to carry our own cross and lay down our burdens and things that we hold dearly to our heart.
Infact Jesus said that‘he who clings to his life will lose it, and he who is willing to lose his life will find it’
If you are willing to come to a place where you do His will and sacrifice your life for Him and testify about Him to everyone around us, then the Bible says that we will live forever.
It is not just sin that stops us from living forever, but the consequence of sin. But God wants to remove all the consequence of sin from our life so we can live with Him forever.
Hope that you will not be like the people of the world who desires for the things that are passing away but your desire will be for the will of God in your life.
