Run to the Cross

I'm sitting here wondering why the world looks so good to me. It seems as though my love for God has been replaced with things of this world. John tells us in his 1 John all that's in the world: the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. All of those are related to self not the world..the problem is with me not the world. Yeah the world is full of sinners that sin but we can't blame our problems on the world itself. But I can't get away from the thought that God feels far away. The problem is that I'm not looking hard enough. When God ceases to be precious, man ceases to be faithful. It's so easy to get caught up in the pleasures of the world (i.e drinking, sex, music, entertainment in general) I know I have. I look down on those who fall deep into the sexual sins but then I find myself there. I find myself looking down on others because I'm "better" than them (don't sin as much as they do in a certain area). That's foolishness. A sin is a sin in God's eyes. I categorize sins too much. When I sin, I rightly deserve hell. Whether it's a lie or I look at pornography on the internet. It's sin. And Jesus died for that. When the things in this world are calling your name...go to the cross of Christ. Run to the cross of Christ. It puts everything in perspective. Love God. Love Others. And thoroughly hate sin.

Much love,
