Ephesians 2:3 ” All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts.”

All of us do it…we daydream.  Pleasant fantasies that transport us from the drab and boring into over the top imaginings.  But if we indulge in these musings more and more, they will soon take over our life…for the real world can never compete with fantasy.  And it’s here in this verse we’re warned about willful pleasure-seeking thoughts.  As humans living in a sinful world –  ungodly thoughts are going to drop into our minds…thoughts that can even shock and embarrass us.  Like, “Where did THAT come from?!!)   But it’s at that moment we have to take captive that thought and make it obedient to Christ. (II Corinthians 10:5)  For if we give in and allow these thoughts to have their way in our mind…our vivid daydreams will lead us farther and farther from God into disobedience.
