OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 4 NOVEMBER 2023 SATURDAY: DOERS OF THE WORD
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 4 NOVEMBER 2023 MEMORIZE: But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 4 NOVEMBER 2023 BIBLE READING JAMES 1:22-27
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 4 NOVEMBER 2023 MESSAGE
Imagine you tell your peers in school that wearing clothes that expose the body is a sin, and yet you also put on skimpy dresses once in a while.
How can you preach about something and not practice it? A man of God cannot be preaching about evangelism all the time and not go into the field for once to win souls.
The Bible says that faith without works is dead, so is hearing the word of God always without practicing it.
For you to grow, you must study and not just read the Bible. It is only what you do often that makes you become who you want to become.
For instance, you cannot say you want to be a mathematician and not spend time listening to or watching mathematics tutorials and solving mathematical problems.
It is what you do as a child of God that unbelievers would see and decide whether to give their lives to Christ or not. Christ-like behaviour makes you a Christian, not hearing about Christ.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 4 NOVEMBER 2023 PRAYER POINT
Father, help me to be a doer of your word, not a hearer only, in Jesus’ name.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 4 NOVEMBER 2023 HYMN
HYMN 18 – WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD
1. When we walk with the Lord,
In the light of His word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear,
Not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss,
Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey
4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows
And the joy He bestows
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
