Seeing Ultimate Reality Everyday, 1 John 2:12-28

Welcome to this week’s 2nd Look.

Sunday’s sermon looked at 3 ways the “world” works its influence in your life.

The Lust of the Flesh- Pursuing all you desire in destructive ways. Setting all you desire as the chief aim of your life.  
The Lust of the Eyes- All you see in front of, and around you, is all that matters. You have not set your mind on things above, but on the things down here.
The Pride Of Life- You have all you need and you don’t need anything or anyone else.

How do these things often show up in your life and in the lives of those around you? John says the world and all its desires are fading away- but he who does the Lord’s will lives forever. The question you need to wrestle with is: Do you believe John? Are there any ways you are living that point to a part of you that doesn’t believe John?

Take some time to work through these questions with the Lord, and please read Psalm 139 as you do so.

Have a great week everyone,
Pastor Ryan
