OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8 JUNE 2023 THURSDAY: SMART BUT FOOLISH
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8 JUNE 2023 MEMORIZE: For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; 1 Corinthians 3:19
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8 JUNE 2023 BIBLE READING 1 CORINTHIANS 1:27
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8 JUNE 2023 MESSAGE
Based on our memory verse, if the world considers you “foolish” because you live by
Biblical principles, you are blessed indeed. The children of this world believe they are smart or wise when they cut corners, cheat to get ahead of a neighbour, defraud the government and/or individuals, tell lies to avoid punishment, or emotionally manipulate people to wield things in their favour.
Whereas the Bible in Romans 1:21-22 says: “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful: but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
God considers people who think they are wise in their own eyes as fools, so you must be different by adopting the wisdom which comes from fearing God.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8 JUNE 2023 PRAYER POINT
Father, please give me wisdom.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8 JUNE 2023 HYMN
HYMN 21 – I WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS
1. I want to be like Jesus,
So lowly and so meek;
For no one mark’d an angry word,
That ever heard Him speak,
2. I want to be like Jesus,
So frequently in prayer;
Alone upon the mountain top,
He met his Father there.
3. I want to be like Jesus,
I never, never find
That He, though persecuted was
To anyone unkind.
4. I want to be like Jesus,
Engaged in doing good;
So that of me it may be said
“He hath done what he could.”
5. I want to be like Jesus,
Who sweetly said to all,
“Let little children come to Me;”
I would obey the call.
6. But oh I’m not like Jesus,
As anyone may see;
O gentle Saviour, send Thy grace,
And make me like to Thee.
