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

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 140 Today's Word Is: Lust"

Definition of the word Lust: means intense desire or cravings for something or someone; to have intense desire, especially sexual desires.

Psalms chapter 81 -12 : So, I gave them up unto their own hearts lust: and they walked in their own counsels.

Romans chapter 7 - 7 : What shall we say then? Is the law sin? is the sin law? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law had said, thou shalt not covet.

Galations  chapter 5 -24 : and they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lust.

1 Timothy chapter 6 -9 :  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts; which drown men in destruction and perdition.

Titus chapter 2 -12 : Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.

James chapter 1 -14 : But every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

John chapter 2 -16 : for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not is of the father, but is of the world.

Today's daily words of encouragement is Lust, lusting is an intense craving and desiring of something or someone.  We're living in a world of lust, our people lust after all manner of things, even each other.  We lust after fame, money and notoriety; we after what the Joneses have, or our neighbors husband or wife.  We lust after all kinds of sexual perversions and strange flesh, It seems our lusting have no ends.  Because of our intense cravings and desires; we want things that we shouldn't 't have.

The bible teach us about  lusting after the wrong things in our lives. If we're going to lust after something; let it be a godly pure and clean in Gods eyes. We don't want to lust after things that going to destroy or condemn us. We should pray and seek after God, and  he will deliver us from our lusting habits and appetites.

      Lust of the eye, lust of the flesh and the pride of life are indeed the enemy against mankind. We need a savior to help us and to guide us in our being or we'll fall prey to one of them. Great hub, reminds me to beware

      Another great hub creativeone. Certainly lust of the eyes is one of our greatest sins, not only in terms of sexuality, but materialism, power, position and so forth.

      It is my hope and prayer that "seek after God, and he will deliver us from our lusting habits and appetites."

      I think lust allowed to get out of control manifests itself in obsession. It seems to be a popular subject in a lot of TV show.

      Just the mention of the word lust conjurs up all sorts of scary conotations to me. Usually, when lust is involved, people will do just about anything to fulfill it. That's when things can get really dangerous. Thanks for such a timely reminder.
