But Flee Youthful Lusts

If therefore anyone cleanses himself from these,
He will be a vessel unto honor sanctified,
Useful to the master,
Prepared unto every good work, unto every good work.
A vessel unto honor, sanctified, useful to the master.
But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness,
Faith, love, peace with those who
Call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
But flee youthful lusts, and pursue
Righteousness, faith, love, peace with
Those who call, call on the Lord
Out of a pure heart.

William Jeng, Amen your comment. "Fleeing and pursuing looks like we are running like crazy. Lol.

We are running away from something terrible-the flesh, the self, the world, youthful lusts; pursuing something beautiful - righteousness, faith, love, peace, the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! This was an encouragement for a not so youthful brother.

Amen! Praise the Lord! Let us all pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with all our companions who call on the Lord’s name out of a pure heart!

“Fleeing & pursuing looks exactly the same - you’re running like crazy.

On the one hand you’re running away from something terrible, on the other hand you’re running toward something beautiful & awesome. ”

Hallelujah! Lord, keep us living by the grace of God, pursuing You with our companions!!

But flee youthful lusts, and pursue

Righteousness, faith, love, peace with

Those who call, call on the Lord

Out of a pure heart.

Escaping worldly lusts is sometimes (even most of the times) difficult when we try it by ourselves. But when we flee them with "those who call" (which is the church), it would be easier for us. That's why, we must not only depend on the Lord, but also on the brothers and sisters in the church.

Amen! I have been enjoying this song pretty much since I received the Channel Only CD from a saint. In the past, I had been focusing on the world, rather than the Lord, Himself. Now, I really want to be washed in the blood of the Lord again. I want to be washed by His blood every day and every moment, so that I can be cleaned from the unclean things to be one of the useful vessels for the Lord. Sometimes, I felt really depressed by contacting the things in the world; however, whenever I turned to the Lord, He made my heart full of joy. Praise the Lord! Fleeing the world and pursuing righteousness, peace, love be with those who call on the Lord out of the pure in heart!
