OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 13 FEBRUARY 2021
THEME: DO YOU KNOW HIM?
MEMORISE: If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. John 7:17
READ: PHILIPPIANS 4:7-10
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
10 I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.

A lot of believers claim to know Jesus, but does Jesus know them? Everyone can be Jesus’ friend. To be His friend, there are certain things you need to do.
One is that you need to spend quality time with Jesus through His word in prayer and fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
This is because you cannot confidently call a fellow you don’t know your friend and you cannot know someone you don’t spend quality time with.
You also have to decide to stay with Jesus. Don’t fellowship with Him for a week and step back because if you draw back, He will have no pleasure in you (Hebrews 10:38).
You also have to do whatever His word commands you to do. When you obey His word, He’ll speak to you always. When you do these, not only will you know Him, you will also get the blessings attached to knowing Him.
No wonder Apostle Paul who had revelations and had written letters to some churches which attest to his knowledge of who Jesus is, still wanted to know more of Him.
One of the blessings of knowing Christ is that He’ll direct your path and you will have good success (Joshua 1:8).
REFLECTION: Does Jesus know you?
HYMN 20: WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD
1. 1 we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear,
Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss,
Not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows,
For the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
