OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 16 NOVEMBER 2023 BIBLE READING EXODUS 20:17
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 16 NOVEMBER 2023 MESSAGE
Lust is an emotion or a feeling of intense desire for something or someone. When a certain thing overwhelmingly entices you, then it is lust.
If you covet something or someone, it is lust and not love.
Lust is not just looking at the opposite gender in a sinful manner, it is coveting what does not belong to you.
On the other hand love is when you have compassion for others. It is what you do more than what you say or think; it is the love you have for God.
Lust can lead you into doing unimaginable evil to your neighbour. An example is David, who, because of lust, committed both adultery and murder.
James 1:15 also confirms that lust births sin. Love does not do all these, instead, it is kind, patient, slow to anger, not proud, not envious, et cetera (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
My beloved child, please love people genuinely like Jesus loved; only then will you please God.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 16 NOVEMBER 2023 KEY POINT
Lust harms, love heals.
