BUTT, WHY ARE PEOPLE ATTRACTED TO THE NASTIEST PART OF THE BODY? (Lust Management)

Galatians Chapter 5 warns us against the battle against our flesh and our spirits…

Galatians 5:17  (NKJV)

17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

God gave us our sexual desires and even perfectly regulated them to encourage long, satisfying marriages (check out this link)…


GODLY MARRIAGE: WHAT IF THE ‘BIG O’ WAS TOO BIG (Adult but Holy)…


However, it’s not His fault if we allow our lusts to pervert our natural, God-given sexual attractions. We cannot trust our flesh. Lust can have us doing some crazy things if we aren’t careful.

It certainly got King David caught up…

2 Samuel 11:2  (NKJV)

Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.

Think about this.


Why are so many people attracted to what is, at times, the nastiest part of the body?


One of the first things that many men and women are attracted to is the butt, booty, behind, derriere, bum, a**, so much so that even countless songs have been written about it…

They are splattered all over television, the internet, magazines, flaunted in public, ‘butt’ that’s because people are so attracted to it.

So, if your flesh is trying to get the best of you through intently checking out someone else’s, (especially other than your spouse’s) rump,  think about the fact that even though it might look good, it’s a good chance it might not smell good.


God has a way or reminding us that our flesh is corrupt and, we will return to the dust of the earth. No matter how much you wash, as you go about your day, a butt will be a butt.


Be careful, don’t let your lusts make a donkey out of you:-)

ONLY ‘GODLY SEX’ IS GOOD SEX…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

5 REASONS WE SOMETIMES DON’T WANT TO FORGIVE OTHERS…

wp-1480174982143.jpg

Have you ever been so angry with someone that you didn’t want an apology from them?


“I don’t wanna hear it!” “I’m not ready for that right now!” “You don’t mean it!”


We must always be ready to forgive as God is always ready to forgive us.

Hear are 5 reasons why we sometimes don’t forgive…

FORGIVING THEM TAKES AWAY OUR EXCUSE TO BE ANGRY

Sometimes when we’re honest with ourselves, we want to remain angry about what they have done. True forgiveness takes away our excuse to be angry at them.

Ephesians 4:31 (NKJV)

31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, [a]clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.

REMAINING ANGRY CAN MAKE US FEEL POWERFUL

When we’ve been hurt, it can make us feel weak, vulnerable and foolish. However, our anger can give us a perverse feeling of power and strength over the person or persons who hurt us. Forgiveness can make us feel weak if we don’t remember that it is an act of mercy that makes us look more like God.

Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

FORGIVING THEM FORCES US TO MOVE ON

 If we aren’t careful, we can find ourselves getting a sense of ‘enjoyment’ out of lingering in the past and constantly thinking about and dwelling on what was done to hurt us. Sometimes people just don’t want to move forward.

 Philippians 3:13-14 (NKJV)

13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have [a]apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

HOW TO MOVE FORWARD WITHOUT AN APOLOGY ( 8 TIPS)…

HOW TO FORGET A PAST THAT YOU CAN’T FORGET…

FORGIVING THEM ALLOWS THEM TO MOVE ON

Forgiveness is a selfless act that frees the offender from the offense, as it does when God forgives us. God gets nothing out of forgiving us for our sins. He does it to free us and allow us to move forward. Sometimes we can have been hurt so badly by someone, that don’t want them to be free of the offense and don’t want them to move on. We can want them to live in a state of perpetual regret for what they’ve done. Forgiving them frees them from owing us an apology. Remember what Yeshua, Christ Jesus said…

 Matthew 6:15  (NKJV)

15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

WHY WE SHOULD STOP SAYING, “FORGIVENESS ISN’T FOR THEM, IT’S FOR YOU…”

FORGIVING THEM ALLOWS THEM TO BE ‘GOOD’ AGAIN

When someone hurts us bad enough, we can find ourselves wanting them to be characterized as bad no matter what they do. Be careful when you feel someone isn’t sincere in their repentance or apology or not worthy of repentance.

Do any of these 5 reasons apply to you?

BE BLESSTIFIED!

MONDAY RERUN: THE WALKING DEAD (FEEDING ON FLESH)…

wp-1488888807457.jpg

AMC’s The Walking Dead has been one of television’s most successful shows consistently for years. For those who don’t know…it’s centered around a man, his son and a close, but ever changing, group of survivors in a world where a virus turns all humans into flesh-eating zombies when they die.

The zombies are a terrifying, dangerous threat…however the greatest and most dangerous threat on the show isn’t the dead…but the living.

On The Walking Dead, those who are left are normal people who do unmentionable acts of violence, treachery, even torture to one another to remain alive. What’s worse, many get to the point where they don’t just do it to survive…but they enjoy it.

Yes, that’s television, but if we stop and think about it, the world we live in is not that much different.

Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to bring the worse out of any of us.

When we are led by our flesh…our carnal mind, the enemy can and does convince us to do some horrible things.

God told us through the Apostle Paul…

Romans 7:15-25 (NKJV)

 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Think about this…Even though you didn’t do it, has anyone ever hurt you or someone you love to the point that either you wished them harm, or you would have taken pleasure in their misfortune?

Again, we are warned that if we are led by our flesh, (feeding on flesh) our selfish desires or anger that we can become just like those zombies on The Walking Dead…

Galatians 5:15 (NKJV)

15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!

 At first you may have thought this article was going to refer to those who are lost in sin as ‘The Walking Dead, and that is true, but we must remember…

In both the letters I quoted above, Romans and Galatians, God was addressing and warning the church, not unbelievers.

Galatians 1:1 (NKJV)

 Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead), and all the brethren who are with me,

To the churches of Galatia:

 Romans 1:7 (NKJV)

 To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints:

 God does not want His people to become, “The Walking Dead” walking in and being led by the flesh…because worse than being like the zombies on the show…

God doesn’t want us to become like the people.

BE BLESSTIFIED!
