Hot Topics... Sensuality
Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality...
Romans 13:13 (NASB)
For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality... promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.
2 Peter 2:18-19 (NASB)
Earlier in this Hot Topic series we touched on the wrecking ball known as lust.* As bad as broken lives look at the end, lust looks incredibly good at the start.

The devil's advertising agency has a superior success record with its campaign of sensuality, as in 'unrestrained indulgence in sensual pleasures.' **

The enemy of love fakes it with lust, and he pretends joy is found in pleasure. Carefully, Satan baits his hooks of lust with barely clothed beauties and tender kids.

His 5-star celebrity endorsements draw countless fishermen to untold ponds. He makes sensuality look normal.

With cold calculation, he doesn't say.. the hook hurts, the bait bleeds and most fishermen drown in the process.

What can we do in such a time as this?

1) Don't agree to be bait. You'll be wounded.
2) Dress with style, but don't expose too much skin.
3) Don't go fishing in the sinkholes of lust.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
