Lust pt 2

Definition

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 Ephesians 2:1-10

At its very root, lust is more powerful than anything else inside of you. It drives you, literally carrying you away with it.

But there is a greater force – the grace of Jesus Christ. He has every intention of transitioning you from lust to life. He is working on you and crafting you into something beautiful.

Thank you, Jesus, that you are greater than the worst of me. Your light shines in my darkness and opens my eyes to reality. I see that you are doing something with me that I could not do for myself – would not do myself. You forgive; and I live.
