low go side to side stop [Music] we can reason we'll see [Music] music [Music] Oh [Music] [Music] [Music] hey listen [Music] oh I wasn't sure if anyone would notice it or not but I guess he totally noticed you're wearing sandals at work well when I woke up this morning I couldn't find my other pair of shoes I put these on I have 87 pairs of shoes and you only have two and one of them is sandals mm-hmm yeah I like them we argument is you every day we help the people of the world live God's Way we look for the links make the connection and you never know what might happen [Music] my name is Mike and this is how we went into lockdown to stay pure so no matter what the issue is no matter how big we will find an answer I know you will he always did so I checked out this guy's guys he's usually not this excited so it must be good get this the County Fair is in town mm-hmm and not only that but arrow Harris is performing in the center stage just the biggest thing in country music since the Eastland brothers I don't really follow country music well you should because arrow Harris is clear I'm so sorry I didn't stop to say hello hello enough with the pleasantries this is not a drill we are on full lockdown [Music] Melissa we have a code corn dog I repeat the county pairs in town the County Fair I thought it'd be more excited because the County Fair only comes once a year he would have been this all started on a normal day at the County Fair two years ago unfortunately your friend here is not allowed back at the fair what exactly did he do Mike what did you do I don't want to talk about it he got his head stuck in a cotton candy machine I don't know what is so tempting about covering your head with pink candy floss but it seems like it happens every year your temptation got the best of you friend well thanks for all your help I promise I'll make sure that he stays here well I've got to get back I've got a cotton candy machine that needs cleaning you know what they say if you can't stand the heat get out of the fairgrounds unless I know I messed up but I really wanted to put my head in the cotton candy machine I just wanted to know what would happen now I know you get kicked out of the fair if it was so tempting why didn't you just leave because the cotton candy machines are calling to me they were like hey wouldn't it be hilarious and delicious if you had cotton candy on your head temptation can be hard but you don't have to give in to it you can always say no and she was right I could have said no so I will just like I did last year I will say no to the County Fair and it probably will help if we say this verse it's from the book of 1st Corinthians say it with me like this the 1st Corinthians 10:13 1st Corinthians 10:13 but when you are tempted God will give you up way out God gave you a way out so that you can stand up under it so that you can stand up God will always give you a way out to say no to temptation so we don't sin code corn dog yep high activated full lockdown good Clare do you have fair problems – actually I'm here for something else guys just because he was tempted by the fair doesn't mean I will be listen to me man don't go to that fair you think you can handle it but you can't Aero Harris is performing oh I've always want to see Eric Harris live hell is that we're on lockdown right they can go if you must but remember stay pure saying no to sin stay pure Satan notice in got it I'll be fine poor soul he has no idea what he's walking into his long a he stays away from the cotton candy oh it's not just the food what do you mean it was a normal day last year at the County Fair you look mighty familiar to me dunno you well I guess you're right I think I'd remember a sweet stache like that one Mike if you're not gonna tell it right let me tell it what do you mean you've never had a mustache like that I have a mustache in several of my flashbacks let me tell it it was a normal day last year at the county fair your cotton candy head yep that's me well aren't you two a couple fees in the pod well I thought your pink hair stunt was mighty wild but this one here's in a whole mess of trouble she tried to release the pony and ride off into the sunset well I'm sure she's sorry and she'll never do it again oh she's not coming back to the fair now I've got to get back to those ponies and make sure that they weren't too spooked by the ruckus thank you for your diligence ma'am you know what they say give him an inch and they'll take the pony out of them favor I have literally never heard anyone say that you stole a pony I knew what was wrong but there's something about the County Fair I knew if I ever got on one of those ponies I wouldn't want to get off I could have walked away but I didn't that's not how I remember it how do you remember it I had a big bushy mustache if temptation is a sin now I should probably take this book back to the library actually temptations not a sin but before we get into that what is the story with that book my parents told me I'm not allowed to read this book but everyone I know is reading it so I went behind their back and checked it out at the library oh I see I was going to go to the park and read it but it said I came here I wasn't so sure what I should do so you know you're not supposed to read it but you're carrying it around with you that's an unbelievable amount of temptation it really is it sounds like you should get rid of that book if it's a temptation for you but like I said earlier temptation it's not actually a sin it's not nope even Jesus was tempted no he didn't see out temptation it's not like he told the line to see how close he could get without sinning but he was tempted here it's in this Bible story [Music] [Music] [Music] every day searching me through history God's grant story which there's no other book like this this book is alive God's Spirit led Jesus into the desert he had nothing to eat for forty days and nights after that Jesus was very hungry knowing that Jesus was hungry the devil tempted him he pointed to a rock and said if you are the son of God tell these rocks to become bread jesus answered the devil using God's words from the Bible it's not just bread that keeps people alive he said their lives also depend on what God says next the devil took Jesus to the top of the temple if you are the son of God jump off the scriptures say that God's angels will rescue you so Jesus used God's Word to give his second answer do not put the Lord your God to the test he said quoting again from the Bible finally the devil took Jesus to a mountain and showed him all the world's kingdoms and wealth this can be yours he said if you bow down and worship me go away Satan Jesus commanded then he quoted God's Word one more time for it is written worship the Lord your God and serve him only as soon as Jesus said it the devil left him then angels came and cared for him Jesus had faced temptation and hadn't sinned not even once so it's not a sin to be tempted yep Jesus was tempted so he knows what it's like when we are tempted you know he said no to temptation he never sinned I guess he knew what the Bible said whenever he was tempted you could use it to help him say no that's right it goes back so soon here we go again cotton candy head getaway Pony ma'am yeah your friend here is not allowed back at the fairground what happened well I remembered what you said stay Pierce a notice in and then I saw Aero Harris's tour bus yeah he climbed in through the window of the tur bus and got stuck took four of us to get him out mr.

Harris was mighty rattled I was just so excited to see him that I saw the open window so I took a chance and my belt buckle got stuck I don't know what it is about y'all in the fair cotton candy ponies tour buses it seems like I have to come back here every year don't worry about us we are all in full lockdown yeah you won't have any more problems with us I'm really sorry about the incident I don't know what I was thinking well you know what they say when you're payin bananers you get monkeys what she called you monkey she called me a monkey yeah now I get why we going to lockdown that was actually Alyssa's idea after the pony incident we decided to make some rules about the fair it all started when we were making rules about the fair [Music] Mike that fair is gonna come every year and bring those ponies and the cotton candy machines what do we do we need a plan to say no to sin Oh we'll call it code corn dog that's perfect okay now we just need some ways to say no to temptation before we go too far we can hold each other accountable yes accountability is important it's just where as a friend I ask you to help me say no and stay here another way to stay out of temptation is to say a Bible verse when you're tempted Oh like first Corinthians 10:13 first Corinthians 10:13 but when you are tempted God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under it we can say that we're tempted and trust that God will give us a way out another way to stay pure is to distract ourselves from the fair perfect we'll just stay here connect HQ and find something better to do yes and last but not least we must never let dot find out about the fair me too I'm officially a part of code corndog so clear do you want to hang out with us while we're in lockdown I would but I have a book to return to a library I should not have checked it out in the first place it was too tempting thanks for all your help and thanks for stopping by and keeping us distracted come back anytime oh I will now how should we distract ourselves well as long as it has nothing to do with cotton candy ponies or country music no all this talk about corn dogs maybe chef Alain has some corn dogs yes come on bull go come on go oh my god [Music] hi my name is Mike and we have some tips to help you deal with temptation we memorized this verse in the book of first corinthians say with me like this first corinthians 10:13 but when you are tempted God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under it temptation is not wrong everyone gets tempted even you and when you are you can trust that God will give you a way out so that you can say no to sin even Jesus God's only son was tempted he knows exactly what it feels like he set a perfect example for us he always said no to temptation and never sinned his knowledge of the Bible helped him when he was tempted he used biblical truth to say no to sin temptation is not something to play around with even though it's not a sin we shouldn't see how close we can get without sinning if you know something will be tempting for you a book or a movie or an event find the ways God gives you to avoid that thing have someone hold you accountable memorize verses or find a distraction get rid of things that tempt you so you can stay pure say no to sin and when you do give in to temptation don't give up ask God for forgiveness and to help you say no the next time and as always remember connect HQ is here to help you you know the next best thing to being at the fair is this corn dog mm-hmm that's a good dog you know maybe I'll go next year maybe next year I can control myself and see Arrow Harris live in person Who am I kidding I can't even control myself saying his name you know when you're tempted to do something wrong Jesus can help you say no to sin every time Jesus knows what it's like to be tempted to do something wrong Jesus came down to earth to show us how to live a Pure Life if you haven't made that decision to follow him or to learn from him all you have to remember are your ABCs a admin admit that you've done wrong and asked God to forgive you for disobeying him being believe believe God send Jesus to take the punishment for your sin trust that you're forgiven because Jesus made you right with God seed choose choose has been your whole life depend on God's power to help you say no to sin as you live and love like Jesus tell others God is the leader of your life and you're number one front if you want to make that decision today be sure to talk to your connect small group leader before you leave that

say it I want you to say it with me are you ready here we go first Corinthians 10:13 but when you are tempted God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under it great job all right we have a super fun activity that we're going to do today here's what it is God gives us great Bible verses to help us say no to temptations so I'll say a temptation and then I'll read a couple of Bible verses when you hear a Bible verse that can help you say no to the temptation I want you to stand up as fast as you can alright here we go the first one I feel like telling a lie now stand up when you hear the verse that will help you say no Deuteronomy 5:19 you must not steal [Music] Colossians 3 9 don't lie to each other that's it that's the one stand up great job all right here's the next place I feel like bragging about myself alright so here the verses second Corinthians 10:17 the one who brags should brag about what the Lord has done that's it stand up no one was easy you guys got it all
