Topic: Flee Youthful Lusts – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi [Monday, November 13, 2107].

KEY VERSE: “Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2Timothy 2:22).

Lust is a strong physical desire to commit the sin of immorality, such as fornication or adultery. It also means a great eagerness for something, such as power. Many young people today seem not to see anything wrong with the very acts of immorality, how much less’lust. Merlin Carothers said, “The hearts of Christians are being corrupted by the world in which we live. Men and women are being sucked into the filth of lustful, adulterous, covetous thinking, and the only warning Christians are receiving, is to not do any of the physical acts! Of course we are not supposed to do the acts, but we shouldn’t be indulging in the thoughts either.”

The faithful pastor, Timothy, was advised to flee youthful lusts. Carnal pleasures, such as fornication are sins of youth. Paul told Timothy to focus on righteousness, faith and other virtues that would enable him to fulfil his ministry. Youthful lusts would destroy his Christian testimony. As a Christian youth, Paul’s counsel is also for you. The media paint youthful lusts as great but you must flee them for your eternal good.

Challenge: Lust is highly inflammable, run for your life.

Prayer: Lord, give me courage to flee the scene of lust.

Quote: Focus on righteousness

Bible Reading in one Year: Proverbs 7: 24-27
