… the battle field is in our mind.
All of us have our sex drive. Some are in hyper mode, some are in dormant mode but all of us in seasons of our life experience having an active sex drive. It is what we do with our sex drive that determines our actions. That is why I am saying the battle is in the mind. Whoever controls the mind, wins.
Oscar Wilde said, ” I can resist anything except temptation.”
“What makes resisting temptation difficult for many people is they don’t want to discourage it completely.” – Franklin Jones
The Apostle Paul said that we need to demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God. and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
That is why I encourage men all the time to be theologians. Study the Bible till it studies you. Fill your mind with the things of God. Fill your heart with the love of God. Fill your life with the grace of God.
Let us take captive every sexual thought that does not honor God. This means you will face sexual thoughts but how you deal with it would determine victory or defeat. As what one pastor said, “There is no sin in seeing the ham and eggs. But if you decide to linger over the ham and eggs, you have just committed breakfast in your heart.”
So what’s running in your mind lately???
