OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 MEMORIZE: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:23
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 BIBLE READING COLOSSIANS 3:22-25
Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 MESSAGE
There are so many skills and professions in the world today that have their basis in the word of God.
For example, fashion design is a profession started by God Himself in Genesis 2, marketing was practiced by Jesus in Acts 10:38, negotiation and prioritization were done by Pontius Pilate when he asked the people to choose between Barnabas and Jess of Nazareth for crucifixion, problem-solving and administrative skills were practiced by Joseph throughout the years of famine in Egypt, and David was personal development coach who schooled about 400 men until they became mighty men of valour.
This invariably means that all our natural and acquired abilities or skills must be used to make positive impacts in the world and win more souls to Christ for the expansion of His Kingdom.
Endeavour to honour God by using your abilities to glorify Him because any ability, talent or gift that cannot be used for God’s Kingdom is nothing but a waste.
Where was Jesus taken prisoner?
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 KEY POINT
The only way to justify your gifts and talents is by using them for God’s glory.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 HYMN
HYMN 6: I’M PRESSING ON THE UPWARD WAY
1. I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining everyday;
Still praying as I onward bound
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith, on Heaven’s table-land;
Where love, and joy, and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
2. My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise, and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My constant aim is higher ground.
3. Beyond the mist I fain would rise,
To rest beneath unclouded skies,
Above earth’s turmoil peace is found
By those who dwell on higher ground.
4. I long to scale the utmost height,
Though rough the way, and hard the fight,
My song, while climbing, shall resound
Lord, lead me on to higher ground.
5. Lord, lead me up the mountain side
I dare not climb without my Guide;
And, heaven gained, I’ll gaze around,
With grateful heart from higher ground.
