The Christian, the World, and Christ

I received this today from E-Word Today:

"Attachment to Christ is the secret of detachment from the world. "

This may very well explain why so many professing Christians love the world and its applause, expressing little or no aversion for the ways of the world.

May the Lord draw His children to Him, helping us love Him more than anything else.

1Jo 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (See Romans 5:1-5).

2Ti 4:10 For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.

Mat 6:24 "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

2Ti 2:16 But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness,

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,
