Billy Graham Daily Devotional August 20, 2017
Topic: Three Kinds of Pleasure
Key Verse: The disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost. — Acts 13:52
MESSAGE: The Bible speaks of three kinds of pleasure. There is lustful pleasure, the lust of the flesh, and Scripture says it is sinful and wrong.
There is legitimate pleasure, which is not wrong, but we are not to become so preoccupied with its activities that it takes the place of God.
Then there is a third kind of pleasure, lasting pleasure. Do you have that kind? It does not depend on circumstances or feelings. It is the pleasure that runs deep and comes from the Spirit of God.
Prayer for the day: Almighty God, may my pleasure always come from being filled with the joy of Your Holy Spirit.
