Lust

If I say God loves you,
does it even matter to you?

If what you really want
is the forbidden love,
the devil swore
he’d give to you?

But just like you reject
the real love
I offer to you,
you’ll be dejected too.

Because fake love
will never become true!

The devil is a liar,
no matter how much
you want him
to change for you.

Listen to Matthew West—Strong Enough song

In satan’s temptation of Eve in Genesis 3 and in his temptation of Jesus in Matthew 4, we see the tactics he used and still uses with us. While varied in their details, most temptations fall into one of three categories as listed in 1 John 2:16: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.

Excerpts from: How does satan tempt us?
