Strength for the Broken Places – Week 4
This Sunday Rev. June Edwards continued in our series Strength for the Broken Places. Pastor June spoke on lust and explained why it is a detrimental force in our relationships. Lust can be subtle but destructive in our lives. It is a distortion of what true relationship should look like and a misuse of the trust we have with one another.

One final word, friends. We ask you—urge is more like it—that you keep on doing what we told you to do to please God, not in a dogged religious plod, but in a living, spirited dance. You know the guidelines we laid out for you from the Master Jesus. God wants you to live a pure life. Keep yourselves from sexual promiscuity. Learn to appreciate and give dignity to your body, not abusing it, as is so common among those who know nothing of God.
-1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 (The Message)
1. What does it mean that “no one is exempt” from the sin of lust?
2. Do you see any form of lust manifest itself in your life today?
