Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their thoughts. They are darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them and because of the hardness of their hearts. They became callous and gave themselves over to promiscuity for the practice of every kind of impurity with a desire for more and more.
Ephesians 4:17-19 HCSB
When we give ourselves to the Lord and accept His gift of Salvation, we are to turn away from the sinful ways of the world; for to follow the ways of the world is to follow the prince of this world, Satan. When we accept the Lord as our Lord and Saviour, we are to align ourselves with the will of God so that we may receive the eternal prize of heavenly life, not the fleeting pleasures of Satan’s temptations of worldly pleasures.
