1 Peter 2:9-12
In this, the final passage which we will look at on the topic of lust, Peter appeals to his "dearly beloved" children in the Lord to abstain from "fleshly lusts." In this passage, he is referring to all fleshly lusts or desire. But, chief among those desires is often the physical attraction between a man and a woman. In the context of this directive, Peter provides several reasons why we should abstain.
