Lust, You So Horny

‘but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. ‘

James 1:14-15 https://www.bible.com/bible/111/JAS.1.14-15

I saved the best for last. This one is hard when now it’s becoming okay to sleep around. This is when the Bible is being touted as outdated. Questions begin as to why do we even follow such a book? Sex is natural; yes. Sex with everyone; no. But it’s not just sex, its everything that comes with this. I left this for last because this is going to lead to the blog post tonight about boundaries.

You probably do not understand why it is a sin. I understand that because I did not either. I was a fornicator and got married while I was five months pregnant. I questioned the Bible. I felt as if it was archaic until I understood why God asks for us to abstain. And no, it’s not about Him trying to sap the fun out of your life. This is about your spirit. This is about your body is the temple of God.

Would you have sex in the church? Or any area deemed holy? (Okay, some will say yes, but that is not good either). The Holy Spirit cannot reside within you while you are willfully committing sexual sins. It’s the Holy Spirit that helps us to control these feelings and live a life that is abundant in God’s love.

Confession: When I say I was contemplating whether I should admit this on here, but so many people could relate to this. I have trouble with porn. I used to be addicted, but it has calmed down over the last couple of years, but sometimes… I don’t know.

Commitment: Self- control. I am committing myself to self-control. When I get the urge I am going to turn on worship music. I am going to worship my God instead.

I want to be close to you Father. I want the Holy Spirit to be able to reside within this body and make me into a new creature. A creature that lives for You. I do not want to jeapordize that. Father, help me to be able to practice self-control with my lustful desires. That I turn my focus from my lusts and look to you, instead.

In Yeshua’s (Jesus) Name I Pray, Amen
