Keep Yourselves Pure
Ephesians 5


How can a young man keep his way pure?
Psalm 119:9a

That question is asked by a lot of young men and women today. Young people are bombarded with sexual stimulation from television, movies, magazines, social media and the internet.

How can a young man keep his way pure in such a seductive world? 

Years ago, traditional values of society would have served as a deterrent to immortality. But not anymore, because peer pressure is reversed. A person is ridiculed for being virtuous. 

How can a young man keep his way pure, when almost no one else does? 

In Ephesians 5 Let's see, God's expectation for the Christian and then consider our motivation for obedience.

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.   
Ephesians 5:3
