Bible Verses For Teens - New Testament

Matthew 14:9

"And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of those who sat with him, he commanded it to be given to her."

Short explanation:
No teenager wants to be embarrassed. Most of them have a desire though to do what is right. This is for sure not an easy stage in their lives! Decisions, decisions, decisions...

  • Decide to do what is right, no matter how embarrassing it might be.
  • Don’t give in to the opinions of friends. It will only let you do the wrong things.
  • Try to avoid situations where it will be too embarrassing to do the right thing.

Herod did not really want to kill John. He gave in to the pressure of his guests and gave the order anyway.

Luke 23:13-25

Bible Verses For Teens
Short explanation:
Maybe your teenager is holding a leader’s position and does not want to have the risk of loosing such a position.

Peer pressure can cause your teen, like Pilate to make decisions regardless of what they know in their hearts is right. Pilate knew that Jesus was innocent, but he did not act in line with his conscience. The crowd demanded Jesus’ death. Pilate did not want to risk losing his position.

We can learn from these Bible scriptures on peer pressure that we should always treat our friends or team members (if you’re doing a sport) with respect and dignity. When your honor is at stake, it is difficult to stand up for what is right.

We should, unlike Pilate, have courage to do the right things in life. We must have courage to make the right decisions. When you make the right decision, it can lead to social rejection, it can lead to not being popular or you can be viewed as a ”nerd”.

So when you are pressured by friends or team mates – don’t be a Pilate! Stick to your decision.

2 Corinthians 6:8-10

“… by honor and dishonour, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.”

Short explanation:

Notice all the contrasts; all the opposites?

Rich and Poor
Sometimes, if you choose to go against the crowd and do what is right, you might be poorer – poorer in friends, but the example you are setting will make others that are looking on, rich. It will be “WWJD” – What Would Jesus Do?

Life and Death
In times of danger – this is now danger in doing the wrong things that others expect of you – we must remind ourselves of the apostle Paul and also of Jesus Himself. Others – (that include you and I) can only experience and know the power of God, because they were willing to suffer. There is victory and life through dying to oneself and ones own desires.

Honor and Dishonor
Stand firm and be focused on God. Do now allow that the

  • expectations
  • opinions and
  • criticism
of others influence your decision making and let it change your mind. Do not be controlled by anything else than by the Holy Spirit. Don not compromise on your standards!


It will only be by experience that you will have a testimony - and by having a testimony, you can be an encouragement to those around you!
