Luke- A “fellow laborer” of the apostle Paul (Philem. 24) and the author of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. By profession he was a physician (Col 4:14). During one of Paul’s imprisonments, probably in Rome, Luke’s faithfulness was recorded by Paul when he declared, “Only Luke is with me” (2 Tim 4:11). These three references are our only direct knowledge of Luke in the New Testament.

NOTE: Read the Gospel of Luke

Lust- Desire for what is forbidden; an obsessive sexual craving. Although there are legitimate desires for which God makes provision, lust refers to the desire for things that are contrary to the will of God. The “lust after evil things” of the Israelites in the wilderness serves as an example of the lusts that should be avoided by Christians.  Christians are able to resist lust through the power of the Holy Spirit. The flesh, with its passions and lusts, is to be crucified.

Scripures on Lust
