Day 11 of 24



Don’t fall in love with this corrupt world or worship the things it can offer. Those who love its corrupt ways don’t have the Father’s love living within them. All the things the world can offer to you—the allure of pleasure, the passion to have things, and the pompous sense of superiority—do not come from the Father. These are the rotten fruits of this world. This corrupt world is already wasting away, as are its selfish desires. But the person really doing God’s will—that person will never cease to be.

~I John :15-17, The VOICE


Worldliness: it involves love for earthly things, esteem for earthly values, and preoccupation with earthly cares. It is a spiritual form of adultery that sets one against God Himself.

~John MacArthur

We have a long text today but it would be worth your time to read it and meditate upon. The world, like sin, has a strong attraction to those seeking pleasure. The influence of the world is as strong as the law of gravity and every child of God can feel this downward pull. The only victory is in believing the word of God which pulls us in the opposite direction. John the apostle said:  “For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” Without divine help [power from above] the world will pull you into its gravitational field. One of the last things Paul said before departing this world was: “Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world.”

  • Today we pray for MINISTERS and MISSIONARIES. Coming to DBC in the next few months are Evangelist Wade Morris [November 2-5], Mike Mason [December 28], and Phil Glisson in February of 2016. We remain prayer supporters of IMB Missionary Ken and Allison Blackwood. You know that Joe David and I covet your prayers.
  • Once again I commend you church for being generous. The SAV-A-LIFE SHOWER and the SAMARITAN PROJECT went will and you have through Wednesday night to bring old coats and blankets for the Samaritan Project.
  • I think, LORD willing, today will be a travel day for me. I even considering coming back through Mobile and checking on David’s folks. It’s in the prayer stage right now.
  • Very good ORDINATION SERIVE for Jeff and Renee Bass last night. Very good spirit.
