Run Away From Lust

Sunday 26th August 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- 1 John 3:1-17

Topic:- Run Away From Lust

Text:- 2 Timothy 4:10

There are different things that people lust for in their lives, in faith, lust is defined as every strong desire for something or enjoyment of something. And cannot be compared with love which is almost direct opposite of lust. You can never lust and still have love.
We are discussing about different people as they lusted for something or somebody in their lives and the repercussion it had on them:

1. Esau, the twin brother of Jacob is the first to be discussed on the topic called lust. He lusted for food when he was hungry after returning from his hunting. Although he was hungry but was so desperate and lust for his brother’s food to the extent that he had to sell his birthright in exchange for the food in which his brother Jacob cooked and tricked him with. He sought to regain his birthright with pain but it was too late. See Genesis 25:29-34.

2. Samson is another case study on this topic. He lusted for beautiful women and got his life, power, eye destroyed, and his life terminated untimely. See Judges 14:1-13; 16:1-4.

3. David the King is another type who lusted for woman, flesh and pleasure. He regretted throughout his life. See 2 Samuel 11 and 13.

4. Absalom, one of the sons of David the king too lusted for power. He lusted to the extent of overthrowing his father that nearly lost his life in the process. But himself got his life terminated prematurely. See 2 Samuel 15.

5. Gehazi also got attracted to material gains and paid very dearly for this lustful desire. See 2 Kings 5:20-27

6. Judas Iscariot, one of the Apostles of Jesus is the next to be discussed on lust. He too lusted for money and gain in order to betray and reveal who Jesus was, so as to be arrested and killed. He too died prematurely by hanging himself. See Matthew 26:14-16.

7. The sons of Sceva. They lusted for fame to be like Jesus and Paul without genuine salvation. They got their life’s beating and destroyed by demonic man. See Act 19:11-17.

8. Demas also, who was one of the associates and disciples of Apostle Paul. He lust for the love of the world and backslided. See 2 Timothy 4:10.
Seeing all that befell those people, you will know that you need to run away from lust if it is approaching or tormenting your life. See John 12:16.
You can determine today to make covenant against lust, Job 31:1, and there will be strength and power against lust for you, Philippians 4:13. Please run away from lust, it kills and destroys.

Prayer Points:-
1. I command you power of lust that is still reigning in my life, die by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I command, I am no more for lust but for the holy living and love henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. I make covenant with my eyes and every part of my body today, never to lust again, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
