1 John 5:19-21
KJV 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
MKJV 19 We know that we are of God, and all the world lies in evil. 20And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us an understanding so that we may know Him who is true. And we are in Him that is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and the everlasting life. 21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols. Amen.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

19 As Christians were are no longer of ourselves but now of Christ, we are to no longer live for our flesh but to live for Him, We are no longer to live as the world but think and live for the eternal things found in Jesus our Lord.

20 We know Jesus came and He is God and we know He will return as the King He is intended to be, we as Christians are apart of His kingdom, that will transcend heaven and be both on earth and heaven.

21 We should put God first never seek anything to replace Him or put anything in His way. We often times may want something more then God’s will that means we have made an idol. We should strive to seek Him and His will by doing this we wont have idols.
