I had a lesson for my Youth Group on sexual purity and I heard this sermon by John Piper, I wanted to feature it in my lesson, so I threw this video together with the help of Windows Movie Maker. The video contains the closing thoughts of John Pipers Sermons titled "Sex and the Single Person". February 8, 1981 | by John Piper | Topic: Sexual Purity http://www.desiringgod.org/resource-l... The Ten Words of Counsel Regarding Sexual Purity for Single People: First, do not seek regular sexual gratification through masturbation. Second, do not seek sexual satisfaction through touching or being touched by another person, even if you stop short of sexual intercourse. Third, avoid unnecessary sexual stimulation. Fourth, when the stimulation comes and the desire starts to rise, perform a very conscious act of transfer onto Christ. Fifth, pray that God would give you, in ever-increasing strength, a longing to know and love and obey him above all else. Sixth, bathe your mind in God's Word. Seventh, keep yourself busy, and when it is time for leisure, choose things that are pure, lovely, gracious, excellent, worthy of praise (Philippians 4:8). Eighth, don't spend too much time alone. Ninth, strive to think of all people, especially people of the opposite sex, in relation to eternity. Finally, resolve to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and he will add to you everything you need sexually.
