Where is Your Anchor Moored?
1 John 2:15 (KJB) 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.
Professed love and thankfulness is surely abundant in the air wherever you find yourself on this Thanksgiving Day.
Two questions to ask yourself about your love:
Is it wrapped up in things and places found in this world?
Is your love based upon a relationship with God first and foremost?
God’s Word definitively tells us that true love always stems from who He is and not from people and things found in this world. True love is built upon a foundation securely cemented in things of God. In fact, love is a fruit or by product of the essence of God. This Truth can be found in Galatians 5:22-23.
Individuals who place their affection upon things based in this world need to check their “spiritual temperature” against truths found in God’s Word. Either they have been temporary been misled or have never sincerely known the biblical foundation found in the love and Truth of God.
