1Jn. 2:17 "And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lusts) of it; but he who does the will of God carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever." Eventually everything in this life will pass away; when it does, God still remains. The world and all it has to offer endeavors to occupy ones thoughts, time, money, and existence. It will flaunt, call, woo and draw you away from the One Who is Eternal. The things of this world try to drown out the voice of God so that you will ignorantly push Him to the background of your life. There is no greater satisfaction then doing the will of the Lord for your life. Instead of missing out, you gain it all. The day will come for every person when only God remains, for He abides forever.
