Do not love the world and desire the things of the world, for such things are passing away and will perish. Do the will of God as revealed through His commandments and precepts and you will abide forever. The point is not to do what God approves of in order to abide forever with total disregard to knowing and loving God, but the point is not to love the world, which will perish, but to love God, for His love will never perish. Love is what sustains life. The world does not have real love, so it will perish, but the saints have real love, and will thus remain forever. NOTE: This is just an introduction. When I write a full commentary, God willing, I will replace what I have written above with my full exposition.
