Bowman, Hetty – Separation from the World!

“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him!” 1Jn_2:15
Such is the injunction of a holy Apostle, one who was largely baptized with his Master’s spirit of love, and had nothing in common with those rigid ascetics, who would make one continued act of self-mortification of life. Why, then, has he, or rather, why has the Spirit of God who inspired him, thought it needful to leave on record so stringent a command? Why, but because he knew that the “friendship of the world is enmity with God!” “If anyone loves the world — the love of the Father is not in him.” He knew the delicate organization of the spiritual life, and therefore uttered an emphatic warning against its exposure to, the tainted atmosphere of a world that “lies in wickedness.” -Hetty Bowman
