OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 27 AUGUST 2022 BIBLE READING MATTHEW 13:8
But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 27 AUGUST 2022 MESSAGE
This is the last category of heart condition in the parable of the sower. Those in this category are receptive to God’s word. They are always ready to listen to God’s word and when they do, they listen attentively with gladness.
They never look down on any preacher of the word, they go to God’s presence with their hearts prepared so it becomes easy for them to grasp God’s word. They also have a heart that is free of worldly desires, so it is easy for the word to germinate and produce much fruit.
People in this category can be likened to those who look into the mirror of the word and are changed from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18) because they never forget the image the word presents to them, instead, are transformed through it.
They are true believers because they live by the word of God. They are good examples to be followed because they do the word. Where do you belong today?
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 27 AUGUST 2022 PRAYER POINT
Father, please make my heart a good ground for Your word always so that I can be transformed and bear good fruits.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 27 AUGUST 2022 HYMN
I AM THINE O LORD
1. I am Thine, O Lord,
I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise
in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer,
nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer,
nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to
Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up
with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight
of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer,
and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love
that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy
that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
