OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 JANUARY 2024 BIBLE READING EPHESIANS 5:19-21
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 JANUARY 2024 MESSAGE
A hymn is a song that gives praise, honour, or thanksgiving to God. After the Last Supper, Jesus and His disciples sang a hymn (Matthew 26:30).
As a Christian, you are to express your faith in songs, but not just any song.
The Bible says that the songs of a Christian must be spiritual as we read in today’s memory verse.
When you are filled with the Spirit, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs will be the natural expression of your heart.
One clear indication that a fellow is filled with the Holy Spirit is a natural desire to sing and praise God.
Many people wonder why I always compose hymns for every special programme.
It is because I realised the efficacy of hymns early. Hymns are used to extol the greatness of God.
They are also used to console, encourage, teach, and even admonish those who are on the wrong path.
The rhymes and rhythm of hymns give an extraordinary feeling.
I love hymns; in fact, I think we will sing more hymns in Heaven than we have ever sung on earth.
My dear child, if you have not been singing hymns, start today.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 12 JANUARY 2024 HYMN
HYMN 16 – BREATHE ON ME
1. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love the way you love,
And do what you would do.
2. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until my will is one with yours,
To do and to endure.
3. Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with you the perfect life
For all eternity.
