The “Hidden” Cancer

2022 THEME: For Such a Time. . .

Series: Seven Cancers

TITLE: The “Hidden” Cancer

Scripture:  1 John 2: 15-17

“Unbridled lust: a cannibal committing suicide by nibbling on himself.”

Lust: “the craving for salt by a man who is dying of thirst.”


   I.        THE FALL


What we know about lust:

1.       Lust is a (disordered desire).   I Thess. 4:4-7

2.       Lust is an (idolatrous desire).

3.       Lust (enslaves) us.

4.       Lust is (destructive).  James 1: 13-15

   II.        THE RISE                      

We are in a spiritual battle:

1)      “lust of the flesh”

2)      “lust of the eyes”

3)      “pride of life”

What now after I have messed up?

1.       Live in (grace) and realize there is grace for your (past).

2.       While there is grace for your past, there is also (expectation for your future).  Take some positive steps.
