“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
THE WORLD WILL NEVER STOP TRYING TO PULL THE BELIEVER BACK
When a man experiences the new birth and becomes a follower of Jesus Christ, he sees the world for all its squalor and depravity.
The new believer then realizes that the world contains nothing but death for mankind: the world’s hold over the convert is severely weakened.
BUT that does not mean that the world will so easily relinquish its hold on the new believer.
The world will NEVER stop trying to entangle the new believer in its appetites; its enticements; its attractions.
DOES the new believer win all of these battles?
