A lot of people are saying, “Well Ed, I can’t help myself, man. Lust is a must. I just can’t withstand the pressure and the pull. I have just got to lust.”
Listen to me very carefully. Whenever we talk about lust I’m talking about us. Lust is about us. I can’t say it’s about you and you can’t say it’s about me. Lust is about us. It’s about everybody. It is something that we deal with.
But here is the good news about this topic. Here is the good news about this place called Lust Vegas and believe me, it’s a place. We can leave Lust Vegas. When we leave this destination, when we leave this geographical location mentally, physically or emotionally, our great God can and will and wants to replace that with something that is totally and completely amazing.
And throughout this series, not only am I going to talk to you about lust, sexual lust, when a God given desire has gone haywire. I’m also going to talk to you about what’s on the other side of lust, what happens when we leave Lust Vegas. Because simply put, sexual sin is an onramp to death. There is no sin like sexual sin. Yes, I understand sin is sin; however, sexual sin is on a ‘hole notha’ level. Why can I say that? I can say that because of research. I can say that because of reading about it throughout Scriptures. I can say that because of all of the conversations and all of the counseling I have done for all of my life.
Sex is multifaceted and multidimensional. We cannot park our brains or our hearts or our emotions or our spirituality outside the bedroom door of a hotel or our mind and engage in lust without it leading to destruction. So I know that many of you in a crowd this size are on this onramp to sexual sin and you’re cruising down this onramp and it’s getting deeper and darker and more diabolical and more destructive. But the great news is you can put the blinker on by the power of the Holy Spirit himself and you can exit, you can make a U-turn and go if way that God wants you to go.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
