Time with God - November 15, 2013

 

Matthew 5:27-30

You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.

Be ruthless with the sin of lust or it will destroy you!

How many lives and ministries and marriages and families have been ripped to shreds by things done in lust! Don’t let it happen to you.

If you allow yourself to become comfortable with even a small level of lustful activity in your life, you will soon find yourself dominated by it and then destroyed by it. This is a sin that you cannot treat lightly. You must draw an absolute line in your life against this sin. Make yourself accountable to others.

Better not to have a computer than be trapped by pornography. If you love the Lord, guard yourself against destructive fantasies and lust! Be ruthless.
