Overcome Worldliness

When we say someone is “wordly,” we are saying this person loves the world and the things in this world more than God. The love of the Father is not in them.

Suppose you’re driving and you notice the oil light blinking red on your dashboard. What do you do? Take a hammer and break the light? No! The light is a warning that your engine is out of oil. To solve the problem, you add oil to the engine, right? Of course.

Now if you are worldly, warning signs will illuminate that you have fallen in love with the world (which means you have fallen out of love with the Lord Jesus Christ). Don’t fight the warning light. Instead, turn your eyes upon Jesus, like the hymnwriter Helen Lemmel suggests:

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,

Look full in His wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,

In the light of His glory and grace.

When you are feasting on Jesus, the devil’s temptations are like a plate of stale crumbs. When you fill your heart with Jesus, you don’t have to be eating tin cans with the devil’s billy goats in a back alley.
