Being craving controlled is no fun!

A desire-driven lifestyle is dominated by self-focus. People who are dictated by self-focused desires are never satisfied. If you won’t control your cravings, your cravings will control you.

Desire-driven decisions demonstrate a lack of self-control. When people allow themselves to be controlled by cravings, they punish themselves by making pain-producing choices. If you won’t put some brakes on your desires, they will eventually break you.

Desire-driven decisions like to detour around wisdom. When your craving for self-gratification is greater than your hunger and thirst for righteousness, you’ll make unwise rebellious choices.

Human beings weren’t created to be cravings-controlled puppets. People have the right to follow self-focused cravings, but they don’t have the right to demand that you approve of their choices.

Desire-driven Christianity avoids being Spirit-led. Craving-controlled people have lost their freedom. The living Jesus can restore it! Christ-followers are called to be led by the Spirit, not controlled by cravings. See Romans 8:14.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
