Bible Verse Of The Day

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

— 1 John 2:17 —
The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

When our attachment to possessions is strong, it is hard to believe that what we want will one day pass away. It may be even harder to believe that the person who does the will of God will live forever. But this was John's conviction based on the facts of Jesus' life, death, resurrection and promises. Knowing that this evil world and our desires for its pleasures will end can give us courage to control our greedy, self-indulgent behavior and to continue doing God's will.
