Lenten "Love Dare" ~ Day 24

Day 24
"Love vs. Lust"
"The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever."
~ 1 John 2:17

"It's time to expose lust for what it really is - a misguided thirst for satisfaction that only God can fulfill. Lust is like a warning light on the dashboard of your heart, alerting you to the fact that you are not allowing God's love to fill you. When your eyes and heart on on Him, your actions will lead you to lasting joy, not to endless cycles of regret and condemnation."

Today's Dare:
"End it now. Identify every object of lust in your life and remove it. Single out every lie you've swallowed in pursuing forbidden pleasure and reject it. Lust cannot be allowed to live in a back bedroom. It must be killed and destroyed - today - and replaced with the sure promises of God and a heart filled with His perfect love."
