Lust Devotional: Tuesday, February 16

Begin with prayer.  Ask God to help you imitate Him in all ways, that you would walk in love, sacrifice for Him and for the sake of others.

Read Ephesians 5:1-3: Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.

As a Christian, in what ways do you “imitate” God?  Do you seek and desire to live a holy life?

Paul says that sexual immorality and impurity shouldn’t be a part of our lives (“not even a hint” NIV), in what ways do you guard yourself against these things?  If you are struggling to guard yourself what are the underlying issues?

Pray that God would give you a passion for holiness and purity.
