OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 JUNE 2023 BIBLE READING JAMES 1:14-15
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 JUNE 2023 MESSAGE
Habits are actions that are repeatedly carried out, which can be good or bad. Most times, they are formed because of the influence someone has on another person. For example, a child who sees his/her parents reading or praying daily will probably imitate the action and eventually make it a lifestyle. Also, if a boy sees his father taking alcohol daily, he will probably follow that path.
Today’s Bible text reveals that bad habits are sins that begin with thoughts. For you not to be ensnared as a child of God, it’s better to stop the thoughts in your mind before they become completed in actions. This is why Romans 12:2 commands us to renew our minds constantly.
Overcoming a bad habit requires a change in lifestyle and the environment that encourages it. Spend time in prayer and be honest about your failures. Also, develop new friendships with more mature Christians who will encourage and Support you to obey God.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 JUNE 2023 ACTION POINT
Prayerfully write out your bad habits and determine to change
