And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lust. Galatians 5 - 24

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 447 Today's word Is : Affection"

Definition of the word Affection : Which means a good kind of feelings for another or a fondness for anything or the affection of love

Romans chapter 1 - 26 : For this cause God gave them up to vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

Romans chapter 1 - 31 : Without understanding covenant breakers, without natural affection implacable,unmerciful.

Colossians chapter 3 - 2 : Set your affection on things above; not on things on the earth.

 chapter  3 - 5 : Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth ; fornication uncleanness, inordinate affections, evil, concupiscence and covetousness which is idolatry.

2 Timothy chapter 3 - 3 : Without natural affections, truce breakers, false accusers, incontent, fierce,despises of those that are good.

Today's daily word of encouragement word is Affection: Which means a good kind of feelings for another or a fondness for anything, or the affections of love.  The bible tells us to mortify therefore  your members which are upon the earth, fornication,cleanness, inordinate affections, evil, concupiscence and covetousness which means for us to abstain from and keep our member from sinning. To stay away from sexual fornication, and abstain from uncleanness and evil and refrain from having more than one love partner and not to covet your neighbors wife or his things. Most of all yo abstain from idolatry and have no others gods before God.

      God says he is the only GOD, so why are so many pursuing other gods when there are none?

      God wants us to keep going forward to our goal, when we look down we stumble, but when we look up we see the glory of God

      God loves all

      Thank you. When we think about God and heaven, we know we will have so much more than we can ever obtain here on earth. Be happy with what we have, keeping greed out of our lives. I work on this every day. God Bless.

      Thank you Faye my favorite was Colossians 3 that we would set our affections on what is above and not on the things of the earth.

      enjoyed your meditation.

      Loving God is the key as you pointed out. When we love God and obey Him, it keeps us from the worldly behaviors. Our affections is centered on God through Jesus Christ. Voted up and beautiful!
