When we give into our sinful desires we will ultimately come to ruin. The people dangled before you become objects instead of imager barers of God. The things that you own end up owning you. The label given to you by others is how you end up defining yourself. These are worldly desires and outcomes.

A Christian desires not these things. As Christians our desires should be for God and to do His will. We should desperately seek His face in all things. Our chief end should be to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

That’s the challenge given to us by Pastor John Samuel Barnett from God’s Word.
