4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love
7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people,
1 Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world,
5 Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me— 6 those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches?
9 so that they should live on forever and not see decay.
11 Their tombs will remain their houses[a] forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had[b] named lands after themselves.
16 Do not be overawed when others grow rich, when the splendor of their houses increases;
1. Leviticus 20:23 And you shall not walk in the customs of the nation that I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I detested them.
2. James 4:4 You adulterers! Don’t you know that friendship with the world means hostility with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God.
3. 1 John 2:15-17 Stop loving the world and the things that are in the world. If anyone persists in loving the world, the Father’s love is not in him. For everything that is in the world—the desire for fleshly gratification, the desire for possessions, and worldly arrogance—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world and its desires are fading away, but the person who does God’s will remains forever.
4. Jeremiah 10:2 This is what the Lord says: Don’t learn the practices of the nations. Don’t be frightened by the signs in the sky because the nations are frightened by them.
