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.

Prayer for the day

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

      This is a powerful comment to me. I was the same way. And u are exactly right. When I really meant with all my heart that I wanted to do better and truly invited god into my heart and started living for him it was a feeling more powerful that anything I have ever experienced.
