OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 AUGUST 2023 WEDNESDAY: YOUR FIRST LOVE
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 AUGUST 2023 MEMORIZE: Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, thou hast left thy first love. Revelation 2:4
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 AUGUST 2023 BIBLE READING REVELATION 2:1-5
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Today’s Powerful Confession: I confess today, loneliness has no power over me and my household. The Holy Spirit is my comforter and Jesus lives in me. I have no reason to be lonely and the devil can not take advantage of me, because I am not naive or ignorant of his devices, in the most powerful name of Jesus, Son of the Living God! Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 AUGUST 2023 MESSAGE
As a Christian, you should be burning with genuine love for Christ. The moment you give your life to Christ, the Holy Spirit fills you with deep and pure love for God, however, believers fall short when they don’t diligently fan the flame.
God pointed out to the Church in our text, saying: “I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:” Revelation 2:2
God told them that in spite of the good works they did, He would remove their candlestick because they had forsaken their first love.
Thank God they had the opportunity to repent. May you not get to a point where God will remove your light in Jesus’ name.
Is the flame of your love for God dying or dead? Fan it by spending time with His word, praying in the Spirit, and listening to the Holy Spirit.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 AUGUST 2023 HYMN
HYMN 9 – O JESUS, I HAVE PROMISED
1. O Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou for ever near me,
My Master and my Friend:
I shall not fear the battle
If Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway
If Thou wilt be my Guide.
2. O let me feel Thee near me;
The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
The tempting sounds I hear;
My foes are ever near me,
Around me and within;
But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer,
And shield my soul from sin.
3. O let me hear Thee speaking
In accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion,
The murmurs of self-will;
O speak to reassure me,
To hasten or control;
O speak and make me listen,
Thou Guardian of my soul.
4. O Jesus, Thou hast promised
To all who follow Thee,
That where Thou art in Glory
There shall Thy servant be;
And, Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow
My Master and my Friend.
