'BEWARE OF YOUR FORMER LUST'

"As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to your former lust in your ignorance" - 1 Peter 1:14
.
Imagine how it would look like if the prodigal son returned back to the far country after his father has accepted him back. It'll be a second tragedy. 
.
There are many people who have returned back to their vomit because they are disobedient, ignored certain warning signals or they are careless about their lives and destiny.
.
What is your former lust? I mean those things you were once doing before you truly gave your life to Christ? Haven't you gone back to them?
.
Lust is a strong desire or an appetite that you have for a thing. There's the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. When you conceive it, it brings forth sin and when you implement it, it'll lead you to death (destruction).
.
If you won't return to your former lust you must renew your mind daily with God's word, you must watch your present association and relationship. A mind that is not renewed and then transformed will conform to its former lust.
.
When you return to your former lust, you are crucifying Christ again the second time and others would blaspheme the name of God in your life.
.
Remain obedient to God's word, it'll keep you off your former lust. Seek more godly knowledge to avoid becoming ignorant.
