Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts ~ 1John 5:21
As he closes out 1John this is the very last verse in this book…. the entire book is about those who are children of God and those who are not…. those who are led astray and those who are not. Those who “think” they are saved and have eternal life and those who are saved and have eternal life. His point is trying to show us how easily we can be led down the wrong road and that road leads to death. And just how do we know, how do we remain strong and in Him? He sums it up right here!!!
21 Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
So with that said what fills your heart? Really think about this…..
Work? Money? Alcohol? Anger? UnForgiveness? Bitterness? Envy? Sex? Sports? Drugs? Entertainment? Your home? your family? Marriage? Cars? Motorcycle? The list could be endless….
Some of these are not bad things but we must be careful not to allow ANYTHING to take God’s place in your heart. God wants you to enjoy life…. I can tell you that you will enjoy life to the fullest when He is NUMBER ONE in your heart. It’s one thing to want to be His child and another to actually being His child.
Now go out and have an EPIC day today.
