And ‘Lust’ Is Shorthand for Any Idolatry

Standard

Lust is a demand for a finite thing to provide what only the infinite can actually provide. God has placed eternity in our hearts (Ecc. 3:11, ESV), and that God-shaped vacuum — to use Pascal’s phrase for it — can only be filled by the infinite torrential waterfall that is the triune God. He is a waterfall with no top, no bottom, no sides, no back, and no front, but only and always eternally cascading love.
