The Will of God Can Be Contrasted with Lust

This is a subsidiary post of The Will of God.
It is also a subsidiary post of Lust.

Romans 12:2  –  Compare with 1 John 2:17 below which connects “the world” with “lust.”

Ephesians 2:3  –  While the will of God is not mentioned explicitly in this verse, but it is mentioned elsewhere in the letter (Ephesians 1:1; 5:17; and 6:6).  As a result, it is reasonable for us to infer the contrast.

1 Thessalonians 4:3, 4, 5, 6  –  “For this is the will of God…that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God…”

1 Peter 4:2

1 John 2:17

We can pursue the will of God with the same zeal which used to drive our pursuit of lust.
