A Word For The Men   Leave a comment

(This was taken from my spiritual brother, Steve Tu, who took it from our spiritual father, John Piper.)

The weather is hot and the girls are out: ANTHEM!

A – Avoid temptation as much as is reasonably possible.

N – Say NO to every lustful thought within five seconds.

T – Turn your mind forcefully toward Christ as a superior satisfaction.

H – Hold the promises and pleasure of Christ firmly in your mind until they push out the other images and ideas.

E – Enjoy Jesus. Sin cannot keep its appeal when it is compared to the pleasure of knowing Christ.

M – Move into a useful activity away from idleness and other vulnerable behaviors.
