The Apostle John, in his first Epistle, tightened down the screws in relationship to llove. The first commandment, according to Jesus, is to llove the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. That pretty much consumes every facet of one’s life. Doing that, of course, will lead one to llove the family of God – the Church – all of those who are a part of His Kingdom.
In Chapter 2, verse 15, John, writing under the guidance of the Spirit, says, “Do not llove the World or the things that belong to the World.” Understanding that “the World” is the system of evil and all its components ruled by the Enemy, one must recognize a simple but profound Truth. There is no middle ground! When that hits home, and one examines their day to day life, it is likely one will find some rebellion, or struggle, or choose a false ignorance in the matter. Don’t! Attempting to live in middle ground is breeding ground for miserable life! Ask anyone who knows!
