Three Kinds of Pleasure

By   •   August 20   •   Topics:


The Bible speaks of three kinds of pleasure. There is lustful pleasure, the lust of the flesh, and Scripture says it is sinful and wrong. There is legitimate pleasure, which is not wrong, but we are not to become so preoccupied with its activities that it takes the place of God. Then there is a third kind of pleasure, lasting pleasure. Do you have that kind? It does not depend on circumstances or feelings. It is the pleasure that runs deep and comes from the Spirit of God.

Dig deeper with Anne Graham Lotz in this Bible study on the Holy Spirit.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, may my pleasure always come from being filled with the joy of Your Holy Spirit.
