OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 AUGUST 2021 MESSAGE
According to the Oxford Learners Dictionary, familiarity is the state of being extremely friendly. lt could also be an instance of familiar behaviour or inappropriate informality.
Being familiar with someone means you have personal knowledge about them.
A lot of Christians take God for granted due to the relationship they have with Him. It is a privilege to know God and have free access to Him.
So, if you refuse to go to church or fellowship constantly because you feel you’ve read your Bible back to back and have more revelations than your pastor or leader, then, you’re becoming too familiar with God.
If you take Christian meetings for granted by chatting, receiving calls, gisting with old friends, socializing with new ones et cetera while there, you have become too familiar with God.
There is a saying that familiarity breeds contempt.
From now on, stop the contemptuous attitude; don’t become carefree with spiritual matters, honour God and He will honour you too.
1 Samuel 2:30 says: “for them that honour Me I will honour, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.”

Father, please have mercy on me if I have dishonoured You in any way.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 3 AUGUST 2021 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.
