Lust doesn’t make people happy. Life in the Son does:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. – Galatians 5:22-24
“..for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” – Romans 14:17.
JESUS: “..Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full.” – John 15:9-11
JESUS: 1 Father… 13 ..I come to you, and I say these things in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves.… 20 Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me. 22 The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one;23 I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me and loved them, even as you loved me. 24 Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world. … 26 ..that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.” – John 17
