OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 28 SEPTEMBER 2023 BIBLE READING JOHN 8:32-36
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 28 SEPTEMBER 2023 MESSAGE
It’s not unexpected to find young people who want to exercise a measure of independence breaking away from routines, relatives, laid down instructions or ancient landmarks” as the Bible says (Proverbs 22:28).
This freedom they seek means making decisions, taking risks, and spreading their wings to fly. It gives them the confidence to try out new things and grow.
This, in itself, should be commended, but too much freedom can cause a teenager to get into trouble. He/she may take wrong.decisions that can affect his/her destiny.
This explains why many teenagers have regrets when they.see their peers in better positions than themselves.
They wish they can turn back the hands of time in order to make smart choices, but as they say, “opportunity lost may never be regained”.
As a child of God, the only true freedom you can have comes from your knowledge about God. Don’t let your freedom put you in any bondage.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 28 SEPTEMBER 2023 KEY POINT
Good people learn from their mistakes, but wise children learn from the mistakes of others and avoid them.

At Thy feet its treasure store;
