Musings on …. Lust

Standard

 So I’m not quite sure what’s got me so down, the sun is peeking out over the horizon and the flowers and grass are in full bloom (allergies are hitting me)

It’s warming up, the birthdays are over and life is grand.

So why am I so down? So why do I feel like doing nothing? I thought Spring Fever was when one gets all antsy to get out and do stuff!

Well, check out the post and I will take my vitamins and get back to ya…. 😉  

 

1 Peter 1:14As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,

Lust – 1939 – Epithumia

the active and individual desire resulting from pathos 3806, the diseased condition of the soul.

Passion – 3806 – Pathos

These  are lusts that dishonor those who indulge in them.

Pathos is the diseased condition out of which the various lusts spring. Epithumia is the active lust or desire springing from the diseased soul while pathos is the condition.

List the lusts that were yours before you were born again into the family of God thru Jesus Christ. Now put a check besides those that seek to mold you to its image. (mine were/are:  men, drink, self)

Are lusts just of the sexual kind?

Are sexual sins different (according to God) than other sins, not of the body?

Comments?

  1. hey i gave the note to the office and she said that she would give it to the coaches…. sorry about this morning…im happy right now love u!!!

  2. I definitely believe that lust is not just associated with something sexual. When our desires take us away from God, then it becomes lust. The first commandment states it very clearly in that we should have no other gods before God.

    Excellent list of texts.
