As Christian young men our dress should be modest and representative of who we are. Learn appropriate dress for all occasions. Church attire can be dressy or casual, but not too casual. Every young man should have at least one dark suit and he should learn how to tie a tie. When you step out of your door, you should be appropriately dressed for whatever the occasion is. Your dress says something about you.

Memory Verse: Romans 12:2 – “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

–  –  –

In Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven Life” he said, “the purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose, Colossians 1:16. What are we saying? We are not in this world for our own personal gratification but as we move and achieve, all that we do should have God in mind. Whatever I do, God should get the Glory. So with this in mind, I should always want to please God in all that I do. That is the purpose by which our lives should be driven, with a purpose to please God and to let Him use my life to Glorify Him.

Memory Verse: I Peter 2:9 – But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.

What’s your Game Plan?

Week 3: The Car -- Your parents go out of town and the keys to the car are left on the table. Your best friend encourages you to get the car key and the two of you go joy riding. Your parents have not given permission for you to drive their car. What’s your Game Plan?

Week 4: Hookup -- Your girl friend works at Targets and wants to hook you up with those sneakers you’ve been wanting.

What’s your Game Plan?

Week 5: Drugs -- You are at a friend’s house and his big brother offers you free marijuana. What’s your Game Plan?
