Live Pure: Girls – Lesson 3
1 Corinthians 6:20; Psalm 139:13-14; 1 Peter 3:3-4; 2 Timothy 2:2 Esther (NLT)
20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
3 Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. 4 You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.
22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.
Honor God with Your Body
Focus of Teaching for This Series
These four-weeks will challenge preteens to value purity. Both boys and girls groups will be on the same topic, but handling it differently from week to week. Based on Philippians 1:9-11 and Ephesians 5:3, preteens will be challenged to honor their bodies and minds as a dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. Guys and girls will learn to make wise relationship choices as they understand what it means to pursue righteousness. They will discover the value of keeping their minds, hearts and relationships pure and be challenged to live it out.
We live in a culture that bombards preteens with messages that contradict purity. These messages come from all angles and are constantly tempting them. Some of the sources include: commercials, TV shows, social media, websites, movies, music, magazines, etc. Rather than allowing culture to shape their lives, this series will help preteens to allow God to shape them. The series will leave preteens realizing it’s totally worth it to listen to what God has to say about purity!
