Youth Ministry: Leaders fighting Lust

The following is part of an email I'm about to send out to CCECYOUTH leaders.
We've had two great meetings recently and spent a significant amount of time in the pastoral epistles (1 & 2 Timothy and Titus) reflecting on the life of the leader. Our character matters more than our competency. Our godliness matters more than our giftedness.

Lust is something that all people struggle with. Guys and girls, young and old, married and single. I'm keen to keep guarding my heart from selfishness and sexual impurity. Be encouraged to do like wise. To that end, I've recently started listening to Josh Harris (Senior Pastor of Covenant Life) speaking on Purity. The series is great so far. Here is the sermon section. Download the talks directly: Talk 1, Talk 2, Talk 3, Talk 4, Talk 5. These talks aren't just for guys!! They've also put together a list of other resources on the same topic.

There are stacks of great resources on the Internet to help Christians fight against lust (there are also many websites set up to cause people to lust!!). The Rebulation has set up a resource page that pulls together many great ones (including John Piper).

If you're struggling with lust - get accountable today. Speak to someone. Join up with a prayer partner or prayer triplet. Be reminded also of the forgiveness that the blood of Jesus brings - and pray that God would keep changing you from the inside out.
If you check out any of the resources leave a comment with any reflections. Likewise - if you find any other good resources post them in the comments section.
