“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone love the world, the love of the father is not in him.”

~ 1 John 2:15

The call of Christ is for rededication to him, a call to follow him, to pattern our lives after his. As John Wesle so wisely wrote: “Anything that cools my love for Christ is of the world.”
