Your desires are not definitive of who you are, or determinant of your destiny, until you begin to obey them. Resist ungodly ones.
When our desires determine our ethics, right is soon replaced with wrong and often we no longer hear our conscience correcting us. Ignoring your conscience is dangerous. Violating it produces ongoing feelings of guilt.
Self-focus will crowd God out of your life. “Deny yourself,” and make room for Jesus!
Being ruled by your own desires is devastating; by rules is exhausting: but by Christ in you, is joyously freeing. When you ignore your conscience, you quench the Holy Spirit. The Bible says not to do that.
When you identify yourself by God’s desires for you and not by your own desires, the fruit of the Holy Spirit will manifest in you. People who don’t think they need mercy are offended by Christ’s offer of repentance and forgiveness.
What you are (deep down inside) is much more important that what you own or how you look. Integrity is the greatest wealth. Most of the problems with government, come from corruption in the hearts of those who run it. The best government is to let your heart and life be governed by the kingdom of God.
