Teaching Students to Resist Temptation featuring Francis Chan

Page 1

In an effort to fit in, students can act one way during the week and put on a good "Christian face" in youth group. Think of your students as you watch this real-life story. Lauren thought church attendance made up for her poor decisions during the week.

Francis Chan is a nationally-recognized speaker and the best-selling author of Crazy Love and Forgotten God.

Let's make sure we are teaching our students why sin is not best for us.
Sin does damage. It hurts our bodies sometimes. It hurts our relationships. It hurts our souls. Another reason is simply that God wants us to put him first. He wants to be more important to us than anything else, and so he asks us to avoid anything that gets in the way of our relationship with him. And when we give into temptation and sin, sin picks up more sins along the way. Sin is sticky. That is its nature.
