Run away from youthful lusts—pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those [believers] who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version
What kind of a runner are you?
Do you run as fast to your Bible as you do to porno sites on line?
Would you drink from a septic tank?
Well just as the feces in the septic tank will make your body sick, so too will porno sites pollute your mind (and before you women go pointing fingers at us men like we are pigs, there is a large majority of women that watch that filth as well).
When we are youths we are inexperienced and easy prey for the alluring lies of satan.
That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from the destruction fantasies (once you fall for satan you will quickly find out it is no fun but many times pure living Hell, just ask any junkie).
Now notice I said mature and not older. Someone can be older in years but very immature in their walk with Christ. Their advice is useless and indeed many times very disastrous.
It is the duty of us older Christians to warn those who are young in their walk with Christ when they are fallowing the wrong path. Be patient with them as Christ is patient with you. Be firm with them as Christ is firm with you. Be respectful with them just as Christ is with you (that includes allowing them to fall into the temptation if that is their choice but to welcome them back if they repent).
Satans temptations always lead to destruction. That is why we need mature Christians to guide us away from them. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for Your Divine intercession when satan temps me with destructive lusts. Thank you for Your providence in bringing mature Christians to counsel me when I foolishly begin to stray. I praise You in the name of He who resisted satans temptations in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
