Bible Reading: 1 John 2:15-17

Memory Verse: Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. James 1:15.

You are not to attach yourself to this world. When you get consumed with the affairs of this life, you are distracted from keeping your mind on the things of God.

All that the devil has got to derail you is grouped into three categories according to our text namely: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. By the power of the Holy Ghost, you must strive never to give in to this tripartite sins.

Lust is a negative emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body, usually against the precepts (commandments) of God.

The lust of the flesh refers to those things we crave for with the intent of satisfying our fleshy desires. They could be the pursuit of food and other things that give the flesh a good feeling at the expense of one’s spirit man. We must not forget the encounter Jesus had with the devil after fasting for 40 days. The first test is the test of food. Also, Esau lost his birthright by giving in to his passionate desire for food. There are many people who are serving God today only because of their stomach. Are you one of them?

Quote:                               Are you a Esau or Jacob? Your stomach can only get satisfied temporarily.

Prophetic Word:      Let every anointing of Esau depart, in Jesus name.
