Lusty Devil

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that you would. But each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know you not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, said he, shall be one flesh. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

ASK YOURSELF:

What are some other forms of lust other than sexual desires?
Lust is a struggle for most Christians. True or False
According to Paul's Letter to the Corinthians how many fell dead on a single day as result of fornication?

James 1:14,15

I think every person deals with lust at one time or another. Not only sexual lust but lust for power, money, recognition. Even having a "lust" for a big ministry is dangerous. Great thoughts!

To overcome the lust of the flesh, we must always recite Romans 12:1, "Therefore I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God- this is your spiritual act of worship." One day our earthly bodies will be transformed by God into glorified bodies and we will be with Him forevermore. Our heart is also the temple of the Holy Spirit therefore, we must keep our bodies clean and free from any stain of sin and corruption. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

"But each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death." I really have to let my Facebook group know about that! There's a really animated debate that I thought would be of interest on evolution vs. intelligent design going on at http://www.intelligentdesignfacts.com

There are so many forms of lust. In fact, as long as we are still here on this earth, we are subject to many forms of evil. Unless we fixed our eyes on our Creator we would not be able to overcome evil. It is only through Him that we can be able to overcome it.

I can't help but think how whole Christian sub-groups are formed around issues of lust - the ones that OTHERS struggle with! Sometimes we each point to certain lusts (sex, alcohol, food, spending, etc.) as the "really bad" ones while we don't put too much emphasis on the things with which we struggle.

I like the way you encourage people in their personal spiritual growth. That portion at the end with questions sets the note for your readers. You are blessed. And is a blessing to everyone who comes by your blog. God bless you even more.

Its true Ms. May that lust is one of the biggest struggle of every christians, and I also agree that lust is not just in the sense of sexual desires.Loving the materials in this world is also a form of lust.Love of money, gadgets, and all those things that are temporary but we give more importance.
