1 John 2:15 - "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him"
There is a great misunderstanding as to why people are entangled in sin and love the things of this world. Some people say that it's because they don't love God enough. That if they loved God more, they would sin less.
In 1 John 2:15, John tells us that "if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him". Notice it says the love of the Father is not in them. It doesn't say the love for the Father. People are trapped in sin because they don't know or don't believe the love of the Father for them. People are in love with the things of this world is because they have no idea how in love God is with them.
Once a person experiences the love of the Father, and truly receives it into their heart, they will simply lose their desire for sinful and worldly ways. When they've embraced God's goodness and grace, they become transformed from the inside out. Always remember, it will never be about our love for God, but always about his overwhelming and unconditional love for us.
