Lust Of The Flesh

How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. Psalm 119:9

Lust and purity are not just issues for young people, but no matter what your age Satan throws out bait to entice you to come  over to his side. A little lie here, a little temptation there. A raunchy movie here, a graphic novel there. The normalizing of things that used to be considered perverse is another way Satan has trapped many. 

Don't be fooled. Stand strong. Stay in the word. If friends are dragging you into a pit of destruction, pull yourself out and get some new friends. Don't compromise what you know deep down to be the truth. Stay away from things you know God sees as wrong. Pornography even what I call 'light' porn of a certain well known ladies undergarment store, cursing or movies that curse, dressing to entice the opposite sex, cheating, trying to get rich quick, are all tools the enemy can use on believing Christians to make you stumble. 

Don't allow this world and its' temptations to get you to fall. If you messed up confess it because God is a God of grace and mercy. Run from all that is even remotely evil and seek the truth and pursue righteousness. 

PRAYER: Lord I love you. So much is out in the world to get me sucked in. Help me resist it strong in my faith. Help me remember to pray for those in my family who may be taking a wrong path. In Jesus' name. Amen.
