Adult SS Lesson Feb. 12, 2012


Purity in general refers to bring free from sin. Certainly this is one outstanding characteristic of Jesus’ life. Jesus has asked us to follow Him in word, deed and thought. Although we are not perfect, we can discipline ourselves to be godly. The lust of the flesh is one of the greatest temptations that people are confronted with. Today, sexual immorality is all but culturally acceptable. But neither God nor His commands of right and wrong have changed. Purity among Christians is still a great virtue and much to be desired.
