What did He do for you? ◦ In the Garden? ◦ He was scourged. ◦ He was crucified. ◦ He was forsaken by God. ◦ He endured humiliation. You owe Him!
Most talk about peer pressure is negative. ◦ Proverbs 1:20-19 ◦ Are they trying to help you spiritually? Are they trying to get you to heaven? ◦ Rebellion ◦ Drinking ◦ Drugs ◦ Sex? Only One can give you salvation.

Negative peer pressure is an attempt to get you to conform. ◦ It is always conformation to a lower standard. If that is not an attempt to destroy you, what is it?
