Romans 13:14

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.


Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no way for the flesh to fulfill its own lusts. I like what Frederick Buechner wrote, “Lust is the craving for salt of a man who is dying of thirst.” Your flesh will draw you away from Christ and you will be enticed by your own lust.


The immoral habits and acts that are born from our lust turn us down a horrible and shameful road. Unfortunately, our society is so full of rampant promiscuity and immorality that the average person sees approximately 247 to 500 online media, print, and billboard ads a day. It is hard to get away from the filthiness of the world. That is why we must not desire or participate in things that will make us even thirstier.


Don’t try to get more of that which caused you to be dying of thirst. You are the salt to the World, but the Lord is the fountain of life giving water. People should desire the Word as a result of your Godly lifestyle. Stay away from that which will make you thirstier and start drinking from the well of life. Don’t allow provisions for your flesh. Instead, clothe yourself and put on the Lord Jesus Christ.


57-0728 - “Thirsting For Life”

And notice, again. What makes you try to have a big time like that? It's because God has made you to crave life. God made you up, your makeup. There isn't a man or a woman on earth tonight, neither there—was there ever a man or woman on earth tonight, or on earth at any time but what had a craving for something, a thirsting for pleasure. And God made that thirst in you. And He made that thirst so you would thirst after Him. And how dare you to try to quench that blessed holy thirst that God has put in your heart to thirst after Him, and try to satisfy It with sin. How dare you to try to quench that holy thirst for something by some vulgarity program on television, instead of going to the Church of the living God. How dare you to pour whiskey, cigarettes, and dope into your body, and use your eyes for lust to try to satisfy that blessed holy thirst that God put in you to thirst after Him. God will hold you responsible, my friend, at the day of judgment, if you don't satisfy that thirst with drinking at the fountain of the inexhaustible fountain of Life. "Let him that's athirst, come. Whosoever will, let him come and drink from the waters of Life, freely." That's what your thirsting for.
