Key Questions for Building the Hot You

By Barrington H. Brennen

April 13, 2011

The three most important

decisions in life?

  1. Your spiritual direction. What or who will be your God?  It is not just choosing God is it how you will live for God and how much of your life you will give to God.  Some people choose a "god" (drugs, pornography, car, job, etc) and have been fooled that they are worshiping God.

  2. Your occupational direction and how will you engage in service?  It is not the specific choice of career.  It is how much of your life you will commit to service to others, a will you lead a life of integrity and honesty

  3. Your social direction. It may or may not include marriage. It is certainly not the choice of a mate as many have been taught.  This most important decision is about how faithful you will be to yourself if your remain single or to your spouse if you get married.  If we say the choosing a life partner is a most important decision we all must make then we can make a single adult feel bad if they cannot find the right person to marry.  Marriage is not a requirement for heaven.  Living a morally clean life is.


What does "hot for Jesus" mean?

  • Living fully for Jesus.  It is a lifestyle the includes the physical, emotional, intellectual, sexual, financial, and spiritual commitment to Jesus.

  • Total obedienceIt is not blind obedience or compliance.  It is the acceptance of God's principals as the normal part of your life.  It is called transformational obedience.  It is not extrinsic but intrinsic obedience.

  • Total surrender.  This is admitting that you cannot do anything without Christ.  It is surrendering a desires and habits under Jesus' control.

  • Excited about sharing Jesus with others. You enjoy and feel free sharing you loved for Jesus to anyone. 

  • Not ashamed to say “No” to doing bad things You will run when someone entices you to have sex.  You will stand up and say "no" even if they laugh at you.  


What does sexual purity mean?

  • Sexual purity is not engaging in any form of sexual activity (clinical or emotional) before marriage and remaining faithful to you marriage partner (no pornography or affairs) after marriage.

  • Sexual purity is a state of mind and body. Sexual abstinence is a state of body only.  To be hot for Jesus, we need both of them.

  • Sexual purity is the dedication of your entire body to Jesus.  Male students:  "I dedicate my penis, lips, tongue, fingers, eyes, and ears to God."  Female students: "I dedicate my vagina, clitoris, breast, lips, tongue, fingers, eyes, and ears to God."


What are the roadblock to making wise decisions?

  • Inability to think and act independently. Proverbs 23:7, Philippians 4:8

  • Inability to think critically. Romans 12:2, Isaiah 1:18, 1 John 4:1

  • Lack of self-management. 2 Corinthians 5:14, Romans 8:38-39

  • Lack of positive self-esteem.  Romans 5:8

  • Being easily motivated by powers outside of yourself. Romans 12:2, Ephesians 6:13
