How To Get What You Really Want – Week 2

Speaker: Grant Agler

What do you want?

 

I do not understand what I do.

For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

Romans 7:15

 

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out

Romans 7:18

 

For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.

Romans 7:19

 

What we naturally want is often in conflict with what we ultimately want

 

Sinful Nature

 

When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,

Galatians 5:19

 

idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like

Galatians 5:20

 

…but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.

James 1:14

 

Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

James 1:15

 

Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters.

James 1:16
