Do you need to send a Dear John letter?
Do you need to send the prostitute in your life a “Dear John” letter?
Have you bought into the materialist lie which says you can have the best of both worlds? You can have the best of this world and the Kingdom of God.
God is a jealous God. There are many instances in scripture where HE calls us adulterous. HE calls us prostitutes. We are cheating on HIM. We are having an adulterous affair with the world.
You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. James 4:4
Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 1 Corinthians 6:16
You can find temporal satisfaction prostituting yourself to the world (materialism). You can rationalize your adulterous affair with the world (materialism). However, the deceitfulness of wealth will choke you. What you have covered will be uncovered by the Lord. Living with a prostitute in an adulterous affair will eventually end in unfruitfulness and the chasing of the wind. It is empty with only temporal satisfaction.
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17
The great commandment is to love the Lord your God with ALL of your heart, with ALL of your mind, with ALL of your soul and with ALL of your strength.
Walk in God’s faithfulness today trusting HIM for your all and do not lean on your own understanding. Make a conscious decision to end the affair with the prostitute and enjoy the abundance of eternal living. Ask the Lord to fill your mind and heart with HIS Word. Speak to the prostitute and tell him or her to move out of your life. Send the prostitute a “Dear John” letter. You have decided to follow Jesus no matter what the cost.
