Overcoming Sin
Truth to Teach. As we grow in our Christian life, we overcome sin by the power of the Holy Spirit. The more we overcome sin, the more holy we become, which means we begin to look more like Jesus. We have battles every day with sin, and God has given us the power to overcome.

Scriptures. 1 Peter 1:16; Galatians 5:16-26; Romans 7:7-25; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Matthew 4:1-11

Application. Encourage them to follow Jesus' example in Matthew 4:1-11 by being able to quote Scripture when tempted to sin. Make a list with them of sins that you might both struggle with and then list verses beside each sin that will help you in your fight against that temptation.

Activities. Talk with them about struggles with sin that you have. Tell them how you have learned to overcome temptation in those areas. Then ask them about sins with which they struggle, and help them think through how to overcome temptation.
