THEME: Everyone experiences peer pressure. All of us are its victims Â– itÂ’s just part of growing up. People all around us are into bad stuff, but no-one wants to feel excluded and lonely. Fortunately Â– that is to say, by GodÂ’s grace, the Bible is full of stories of men and women who battled peer pressure and give us examples of how we should deal with peer pressure today.
LEAD BIBLE REFERENCE: Â“Dear friends, you are like foreigners and strangers in the world. So I beg you to keep your lives free from the evil things you want to do, those desires that fight against your true selves. People who donÂ’t believe are living all around you. They may say that you are doing wrong. So live such good lives that they will see the good you do and they will give God the glory on the day he comes. (Peter 2:11-12)Â”
The Bible is full of stories of young men and women who battled with peer pressure. When the pressure was on they either stood their ground or caved in miserably. Either way, their lives are examples of how we should or shouldn't deal with peer pressure today. This study looks at these characters and the 6 'Ins': Influences, Intimidation, Insecurity, Individuality, Independence and Involvement, and how each contributes to the way we deal with peer pressure.
The Youth Bible Study Guide: Peer Pressure is one of a series of study guides for young people designed to be used alongside the Youth Bible, Easy-to-Read Version. It contains insights from a number of well-respected authors and has been compiled by Chip and Helen Kendall.
