Because of Calvary,
I John 2:15-17 (ESV)15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
“This world is all a fleeting show,
For man’s illusion given;
The smiles of joy, the tears of woe,
Deceitful shine, deceitful flow, ―
There’s nothing true but Heaven!”
[Sir Thomas Moore in 12,000 Religious Quotations edited and compiled by Frank S. Mead, (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1965), p. 218]
