In this lesson you will learn that one of the barriers to full joy is loving the world. John provides three reasons to love the Father and not to love the world: 1) We cannot love both the world and the Father; 2) Lusts for the world are not from the Father; and 3) the world is passing away but the obedient one abides forever.
