This is a 4-week sermon series that holds nothing back in order to paint a biblical picture of God's design and purpose in your students love life, both now and in the future. Your students will be challenged to re-evaluate their thoughts on dating, romance, and preparing for their future marriage and family. I can honestly say that this was one of the best series that we have ever done in our student ministry. We had a tremendous response! Not only did the students really get into it, but I think the parents loved what we covered even more (extra points with the parents!!).
Week 1 - It's a Gift!
This covers 6 ways that love, sex, and romance are gift made by God and given to us. In this sermon your students will get a clear presentation of God's purpose and plan for romantic intimacy in marriage. This is huge because if your students really get this it will change the way they think and act as they protect and prepare for their future marriage now.
Week 2 - Before You Date
Let's face it, most students in your youth group should not be dating. So what sort of good news does God have for them now? Here's what Jesus wants them to know right now... He cares about the people that they choose to care about and spend time around and He wants them to be surrounding themselves with people that are headed in the right direction.
Week 3 - Dating
What does the Bible say about dating? We can find 4 super key issues from the story of Isaac and Rebekah that we have to make central in our life and our relationships if we even want to think about dating someone. I loved giving this one!
Week 4 - Sexual Temptation
In the meantime, the greatest weapon Satan has to derail God's plan for your sexual purity and your future marriage is sexual temptation. In this sermon, you'll give your students an offensive and defensive battle plan to prepare for temptation, to overcome it every single day, and to be able to repent when they do screw up.
