Preparing for the battle

Starting this Wednesday night I will begin teaching a class called Every Man’s Battle. The class material will come from the book called Every Man’s Battle by Stephen Arterburn and Fred Stoeker (what a coincidence). This book is designed to help men gain victory over sexual temptation. The class was originally intended for the teenage boys, but I decided to open it up to men of all ages. I think this class can be a powerful witness to the strength of sexual sin. I am really praying that some older men will come to the class because I know that will help the teens to see that they are not the only group of people who deal with this sin.

My family and I went to Arkabutla Lake today for a little relaxation. I am not what you call a water person, so I decided to lay on the beach while they went swimming. I wanted to read a couple chapters of my book to prepare for my class. As I sat in the sun women continued to walk by in their bikinis. So there I was trying to focus my attention on teaching sexual purity and at the same time trying to keep my eyes away from the constant “distractions”. I am excited to say that I got two chapters read despite my environment. I should have known that a beach is not a good place to keep my eyes pure, but it helped me to realize even more that this battle with staying pure is something that will NEVER go away. I pray that something I teach this summer will help our young and older men to realize that God wants them to lead a pure life. I pray that I can continue to practice what I preach.
