Title: Resisting Temptation: The Battle for Purity

Lesson Objective: To teach teens about the importance of purity and the need to resist temptation in order to honor God.

As teenagers, you may feel pressure to conform to the standards of the world around you. Everywhere you look, you are bombarded with messages that glorify impurity and temptation. But as Christians, we are called to live a life of purity in both our actions and our thoughts. Today, we will explore the battle for purity and the importance of resisting temptation in order to honor God.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 – “Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”

– What does it mean to live a life of purity?
– Why is it important to honor God with our bodies and our thoughts?
– How does the world around us tempt us to compromise our purity?

The Battle for Purity:
– We live in a world that glorifies impurity, but as Christians, we are called to live differently. We are called to honor God with our bodies and our thoughts, resisting the temptation to give in to impurity.
– The battle for purity can be difficult, but with God’s strength and the support of our fellow believers, we can stand firm in our commitment to purity.

Resisting Temptation:
– It’s important to be aware of the temptations that surround us and to avoid situations that may lead us astray. This can include avoiding media or friendships that encourage impurity.
– Remember that God has given us the strength to resist temptation. When we are faced with temptation, we can turn to Him for strength and guidance.
– Seek accountability and support from other believers. Surround yourself with friends who will encourage you to live a life of purity and hold you accountable in the midst of temptation.

Living a life of purity and resisting temptation is a battle, but it is one worth fighting for. As we honor God with our bodies and our thoughts, we can experience the joy and fulfillment that comes from living in accordance with His will. Let us remember that we are not alone in this battle, but that God is with us, giving us the strength and courage to resist temptation and live a life that glorifies Him.
