The External Foe: Victory Over The World

Passage: 1 John 2:15-17
Service Type:

"The world" in this passage is not referring to the created order or to the human race, but to an ordered system which is opposed to God."

JOHN 12:31 - The world is under satan's domain.
JOHN 12:46 - The world is a dark place.

1. The world seeks to usurp the affections of God's people. (v. 15)

2. The world tempts us in three areas: (v. 16)
(1) Sensual Pleasures - "the lust of the flesh"
(2) Self-Indulgent Greed - "the lust of the eyes"
