Flee Youthful Lusts
2 Timothy 2:22
Now flee youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those calling on the Lord out of pure a heart. (2 Timothy 2:22)
The Lord is calling you to mature spiritually. The key to maturity is to flee from lust. Lust is what consumes you and pulls you away from the Lord. Ask yourself, “what is pulling me away from the Lord?” Once you know what your lusts are, the next step is to flee from them and replace your lusts with pursuing righteousness, faith, love, and peace. You are not called to do this alone, but to pursue the Lord with others. The Lord wants you to be encouraged by others and to be an encouragement to others. ~ Jeff M Newman
