The World Has a Counterfeit for Every Truth

The World Has a Counterfeit for Every Truth

by Kim Hawkins

“The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” 1 John 2:17

The world teaches us to be selfish and do what is right in our own eyes. Jesus led us in the ultimate example by being a servant instead of being served, not following selfish desires but only doing what the Father had instructed him.

This world is the opposite of God’s kingdom. By regularly examining our motives and studying/memorizing God’s word we can make certain that we are following after God’s truth and not the trappings of this world.

… “for the LORD will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.” Proverbs 3:26

Inner-beauty or Outward Appearance

Humility or Pride

Peace or Stress

Trust or Unbelief

Faith or Fear

Joy or Misery

Happy or Holy

His gifts are REAL and we don’t have to settle for the cheap knock-offs! As we delve into God’s word, it will divinely reveal our wrong thinking.

 “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

Challenge: Ask the Lord if you have any counterfeit’s you need to exchange today. “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  

Romans 12:2a
