2 peter 1:3
How sin operates
"A lack of depravity is not purity"
You have to do something to get close to god,
Healthy goals looks like:
Something to do with god.
Help affirms you, fam church, god, his kingdom
"good intentions pave the road to hell"
Temp is test of moral resolve
Temp is encouraging
"when you are temp, you are a threat to the enemy. When you're tempted its because you have something to offer the kingdom that the enemy wants to take!"
1 James 13-15
no temp is impossible to resist
No temp is completely overcome. He will try and try again
It takes hard work to create something great
You make all these small decisions (prayers, devo) so that one day when youre tempted you can fight it
2. Accountability. Don't just ask for accountability, keep your word.
3. Fellowship in church body
Regret is harder to live with than discipline
1. Trusting god
"enjoy your seasons"
A relationship is you're dying to yourself to serve that person.
2. Special friends (dating)
Goals, dreams, spend time with their families
Hold of affection
Don't give your heart away
