Again we are going to learn that the thoughts and intents of the heart can produce sin just as well as the outright actions. Any more if you look at the way people dress, Television shows, and all the media surrounding the world, lust is at the top of the list of things most available. 
  

I.   Lust A sin of the eye


Lust is a care of this world Mark 4:19 and I John 2:16-17, in Romans 13:14 and Titus 2:12-14 the cure is given. 

Lust wars against the soul I Peter 2:11 

Matthew 6:22-24 if the eye is following wrong so is the WHOLE body. Remember this lyric "be ye careful what ye see"? 

An example of lust Matthew 14:1-12 
  
 

II.   Remove any form of lust from your life


Abstain from all APPEARANCE of evil I Thessalonians 5:22 

Come out from the world II Corinthians 6:14-18, and John 17:14 

We cannot be like Simon the Sorcerer was Acts 8:5-21.  

If we are at that point we need to do what Simon did Acts 8:22-24. 

When we are converted we must Repent of our sins (Acts 2:38) which means to do as Acts 26:20 reveals. 
  

III.   It is better to remove these things from our lives than to go to Hell
Will not be able to see in Hell anyway Matthew 25:30. 
Hear the words of the Rich Man in Hades Luke 16:19-31. 
  
Conclusion:
Be ye careful what you see! Keep your eyes focused where the need to be Colossians 3:2
