Day 16

LUST IS THE BOMB!

By Min. DJ

Jas 1:15

"Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”

God hates lust because God hates sin. God hates sin because God hates death. God hates death because God loves you. But when you get drawn away by lust, you get stuck in sin. And when sin has its way with you, you’re dead meat.

Sometimes, people think of God as the “Master Party Pooper” because it may seem like everything they consider big fun is outlawed as sin in the Bible. But the truth is that God is not the party pooper, Satan is. God is planning the biggest, livest, most off-da-hook party in history, and he’s invited the whole world…literally! It’s called heaven. And Satan will do anything to make you miss that party. His main strategy is to trick people into choosing his little lust parties over God’s kingdom. His parties are the bomb…but not in the way you may think. When you give in to the lust of your flesh and participate in sin, you initiate a deadly time bomb. God isn’t trying to spoil your fun. Actually, He’s preserving it! Psalms 37:4 says that God wants to give you the desires of your heart, but you have to trust Him enough to do things His way. The devil’s so called party is a death trap. If you’ll just commit yourself to God, you can still have your desires fulfilled, but without the death sentence. Here’s 7 Keys that’ll help you overcome lust.

  2. Flee Youthful lust. Ro 13:14
  3. Follow after the Kingdom of God. 2Ti 2:22
  4. Fellowship. 2Ti 2:22
  5. Fast. Ga 6:8; 1Co 9:27
  6. Feed the spirit. Mt 4:4
  7. Forget the past. Php 3:13
