I was grateful to listen to pastor Gwon’s sermon for a long time. The most memorable
part of the sermon was the video clip of the mongoose, which is just 40cm long, attacking
the cobra, which is 4m long and winning. We are really small ones compared to this wide
world, but we can win against the world through the life of Jesus Christ and with help from
the Holy Spirit dwelling in our mind. But we need exercise and train to overcome the
world like mongoose who got tough through training from his parents to fight cobra.
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the father is
not in him. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will
of God lives forever.”(1John 2:15,17)
As believers, it is good exercise to not love the world, but love God and do his will.
As the mongoose killed the cobra, I hope we finally win against the world by excercising not to love the value
of the world and culture, but love only God every day. –Insights from Lee Sung Hak
