OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS 4 FEBRUARY 2019 – WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Revelations 3:16
Read: Philippians 4:8
8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
For a thing to be pure, it means that that thing is completely of one form, such that nothing else is mixed in. God is not interested in two-timers.
With God, you are either hot or cold; there is no staying in between. This is also how He expects us to think. God wants us to be focused in our thinking.
For instance, if you are reading your books, there should be no going on social media in between.When it comes to spiritual matters, if you are for God, be totally sold out to Him.
He said, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18
In the spirit, you are either pure white or pure red. There is no sitting on the fence. It is your choice which one you want to be, however He advises that you live holy and be white. Read – Open Heaven 4 February 2019
Decide to be for God and be completely sold out to Him.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. I am Thine 0 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.
