Today’s Quote is About Worldliness

Posted by:

10293315_sWe think of what we love; but we do not love God; therefore, we do not think of him. We have no pleasure thinking about Him, rather, as these thoughts are irksome to us, we drive them out as soon as we can, and return to what we love to think of. So that the things of the world engross all our thought.” — John Wesley

    As a younger christian, I can say that John Wesley has captivated well the human condition regarding thinking of and loving on God.

    However, as I grow in years and maturity and my desire and Love for the LORD and my Heavenly Father increases, most of my thoughts are consumed with the eternal, being in the presence of this HOLY, GOOD GOD who is my Father, and with Jesus My Lord. My desire is to be with Him as soon as it is His will for me to be there.

    It has become increasingly evident that this world is NOT where I belong … it is not my home … my HOME is with Jesus … and I can hardly wait to get there … May HE COME QUiCKLY!

      Me too! I love the following quote by CS Lewis: “If you find yourself with a desire that no experience in this world can satisfy, then the most probable explanation is that you were made for another world.”

      That is the best explanation I have ever read on the turmoil/conflict Christians feel living in this foreign land.
