SATISFACTION (oct. 24, 09)

"Inner peace springs out of inner purity."


Pornography, once a secretive backdoor industry, is now out in the open. The easy access and anonymity of the internet have turned it into a multibillion-dollar-a-year "business." But it leaves a trail of broken families, ineffectivhristian leaders, and men who have lost the respect of their love ones.

The apostle John was known for his great love for Christ and His church. In 1 John 2:12-17, he warned fathers and young men against these three lusts:

- The lust of the flesh -- the insatiable appetite to indulge in pleasures that inflame the flesh but never satisfy.

- The lust of the eyes -- wandering eyes that continually want more riches and possessions but always remain covetous.

- The pride of life -- the vain mind that thirsts for man's applause. But the glory evaporates quickly.

Pornography damages users and victims alike. It feeds lustful desires in ways that can never satisfy. True satisfaction is found only when we give our affections to eternal things--to a right relationship with our heavenly father and with those He has created in His image.

"The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever"
-1 john 2:17

Now none but Christ can satisfy,
none other name for me;
There's love and life and lasting joy,
Lord Jesus, found in Thee. -- McGanahan
