I John 5:19 “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” Here is a certainty expressed- Christians are the children of God! As Christians, we follow God, a path that changes our worldview. We begin to see life and what’s important in life from God’s point of view. So, according to what John has taught in this epistle, things important to God include having fellowship with God and others, obeying His commands, and loving God as evident by our loving other Christians, and eventually, all people. We put God’s plan as most important and are willing to sacrifice everything to follow God, who is our priority. “The whole world lieth in wickedness” speaks of the worldview that emphasizes wanting stuff, wanting to experience the temporary excitement that comes from living life to fulfill our fleshly desires, and the idea that our identity and worth is found in what others think of us. There are only two types of people, those following God and those following the path we call the “world”. What are you following today?
