“Avoid Youthful Lusts”

Key Verse

“Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22

Text — 2 Timothy 2:16-22


Young people are known for their strength, energy, passion and strong desire to acquire knowledge. However, youthful energies, strength and passions can be used to do negative things if care is not taken. Young people who have tasted the grace of God and have given their lives to Jesus should be free from negative traits of the youth. Today’s text is a warning to all young people to run away from sinful desire and abstain from immoral behaviours that can endanger their souls.

Christian boys and girls should run away from immoral relationship with the opposite sex. The devil is using various means to lure young people into sin. Do not be a victim! Avoid watching pictures of naked people (pornography), cultism, evil friendship, internet frauds, drug addiction etc. These things will not only destroy your future, but condemn you to eternity in hell. Are you already involved in any of these bad things? Repent and ask God for forgiveness and cleansing. Believers should daily study the word of God, watch and pray and run away from people, things and places of temptation as Joseph did. Flee all youthful lusts!
