Guiding Teens Toward Blessings


Guiding teens toward blessings!

Teens are primed for passion

and it is seen

in two ways.

Passion for worthy causes

and

Passion for either.....

sexual purity or worldly impurity.

teens-2

As parents, grandparents, and youth leaders,

we show

wisdom

when we stir the passion

of our teens toward -

dedication to God and sexual purity

(We need to give reasons  - not just say "no".)

Be sure and visit our Purity Comments page!

wisdom word

Every teen

(to one degree or another)

will develop

what their adult passions are

during their teen years. 

Most parents, grandparents, youth leaders, etc.
are not
stirring up
their own godly passions
so that
they can be a well of living water
and a
living picture of purity and passion for Christ.

Most parents and grandparents are living
lack luster
lives for Christ
at the very time
when teens are ripe for the harvest. 

If that is you,

you CAN change and inspire your teens!

God - and your teens - are worth it!

It is wisdom to require

teens

to

watch movies,

listen to songs,

do activities,

and

participate in discussions

to challenge them to ...

First -

Place

their passions in the right direction. 

(in agreement with God.)

Second -

Stir up

right passions....

God wants

teens to be dedicated to God.

Hot toward God...

 - Not cold or lukewarm toward God. 

sunset-joy-men-water

Teens need to see

movies and teaching videos

about sexual purity

AND

Teens need movies about dedication to God.

For example...

I recommend the following

Movie

about....

Salvation and Dedication:

Without Reservation


CASH

CASH

I am suggesting you consider

paying significant money

for certain activities.

We adults are moved by money and more so teens.

credit-card-advice-4

When temptation

comes to cool your teens passions

toward God and righteousness -

at least be putting a little

cash

under the nose of your teen

to help with godly motivation.

For example -

We need to require teens to watch movies about

sexual purity... 

such as...

red-down-arrow

The movie -

Old Fashioned...


The world teaches us

Worldliness.


This movie will teach us

to desire

Godliness.

Sex will make you...

Stupid

I urge you to read the story of

Samson in the Bible

WITH your teen. 

And then listen to the video below.

Secrets

from

Samson

What is meant to be

a benefit in marriage

is a curse

outside of marriage.

Things

to

consider

Note: That is not the definition of prostitute.
However, we become one with anyone we have sex with.

This section

is a teaching section

to help you get ready to teach these things to your teens.


Your beloved teens

need to read the following verses

 - and others like it - 

and take it seriously.

(Please adapt this section to your teen and his or her age.)

Our world

today does not

take this seriously

and one day they will find out that God means what he says.....

Holy-Bible-side-view

God says...

"Flee sexual immorality.

Every other sin that 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,

and that you are not your own?

For you have been bought for a price:

therefore glorify God in your body."

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 NASB


And

God says,

"For this you know with certainty,

that no sexually immoral

or impure or greedy person,

which amounts to an idolater,

has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God."

Ephesians 5:5 NASB


God forgives every sin

of someone

who genuinely repents.

But take note,

genuinely repenting of fornication

and then

rebelliously

turning around and doing it again and again

is not

true repentance.

-

Repentance is about a mind change and a heart change.

We need to learn how to FIGHT temptation.

Also see our page..... Help for Purity


Invite God to help you fight.


Pray and seek help from God.

And God will work with you to renew your mind.

If you are sincerely fighting against a sin,

God will be by your side helping you

and forgiving you when you fall and genuinely ask.

-

And take note:

There can be

no repentance from God

if you are living with your boyfriend or girlfriend.

! ! !

The fact that you are living with him or her

indicates your intentions to sin. 


cross-crown-small

We need to

require teens

to watch movies

about

heaven and hell

and

life and death.


Statistics

tell us that

if

teens do not give their heart

to Jesus

as teens and begin to serve him -

it is not likely they will later.


That should not quell our zeal for going after our

adult loved ones

- and it should -

increase our zeal for evangelizing our teens. 


The main problem is that God has entrusted

the lives of teens to

parents, guardians, and trusted ones

- but -

we have not taken advantage of these teens years

by

intentionally creating activities

to stir up teens to godly dedication. 

This includes

doing things for our teens like...

texting a scripture to them,

buying gifts that have a biblical message,

doing devotions with our teens,

(even while on the phone)

reading the Bible with our teens,

and praying with our teens.

(And Praying FOR our teens.)

Most

parents and guardians

are oblivious to the role they play at this critical teen time.

Consider our page

Helping Teens


young-man-praying-2

Prayer


Most adults get stuck after one or two sentences

while praying with their teens.


We need to grow

in practicing praying WITH our teens...

whether they are

our children, grandchildren, or nieces or nephews, etc. 

(We need to pray WITH teens - but - Get Permission of their parents.)

Teens will

choose Jesus  - or - they will choose the world.


The difference between the two

has never been more obvious

during my lifetime.



There is a lot of "world / worldliness "

in teens

that needs to begin to get worked out.

Even at this young teen age,

they need a lot of guidance and attention

to begin making major progress in godly maturity. 


three-happy-teens

"Without a vision, the people perish."

Proverbs 29:18

And...

Without strength people perish.

~

Without motivation people perish.

~

Without wisdom people perish.

And...

Without intentional parental guidance toward God,

teens will suffer

a lot more pain and heartache

than would happen otherwise.


They need to be taught

over and over again

to

Turn from sin  - to righteousness and purity.

Turn from self  -  to serving Christ.

Turn from rebellious thoughts  -  to obedience thoughts.

Turn from what pleases the world  - to what pleases God.


DSIC-yellow-pencil
bible-red-cup

You do not want your beloved teen

to remain content

while they live without the righteousness of God -

having no sense 

of the knowledge of being a sinner

and no sense of

the knowledge of

the need to develop a heart

that wants to do right and serve God.


arrow-orange

When confronted with the Gospel,

teens will

spiritually arise and go to their Heavenly Father's house

and make their abode with him

or

they will hide from their heavenly Father.

An obvious fact is that -

starting this process

when they are children

will put teens in a better position

to become passionate believers in their teen years.

I have lots of devotional pages

specifically for children

and teens.

Here is a page called - -  Devotions for Teens

Note: most of my devotional pages are well suited for teens.

(Consider my Psalms pages)

I beg you to consider...

faithfully carving out time during each week

to actively do and say things

that will strengthen your teen (or child's)

dedication to Jesus.
