LUST – a love of your own gratification that renders love and devotion to God and others secondary. It is a self-indulgent extravagance, a worship of personal wants.
Read 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7
The passion of lust will make you lose control. You will find yourself looking back and trying to remember what it meant to feel true love, to know compassion. When lust burns inside us, our only recourse is to find Christ and set our focus on his work in us.
Jesus, you are my first love. I want all my other loves in life to flow from my relationship with you. Help me not to be blinded by the passions of lust and instead be open to your Spirit’s warning and direction.
