Series: Goin’ all the way (a title we borrowed from lifechurch.tv)
Description: Lust, in it’s simplest form, is “unrestrained (sexual) desire.” In 2 Samuel 13, a story is told of Amnon and Tamar. Amnon was infatuated with Tamar (understatement!). However, Tamar was a virgin…and also Amnon’s sister (yuck). He did everything to get with her…she obviously didn’t like the idea. She was open to the idea of marriage, but Amnon wanted her right then. Because of Amnon’s unrestrained desire, he raped Tamar…ironically enough, afterwards Amnon hated Tamar…even more than he had loved her.
Bottom Line: Lust will always promise what it cannot deliver(true intimacy and love)
Application: What area of life do we have “unrestrained desire”? 1 Thess 4 teaches to “control our body…” in ways that are holy and honorable.
Song List: You Deserve, All because of Jesus, Break Free (note – mostly student led worship!)
