MESSAGE:

One major tool of deception that the devil uses on teenagers is to make you believe that no one is living holy anymore. This is a big lie from the father of all lies. There are still many Christian teenagers who are living holy. Many of them are baptized in the Holy Ghost and even working miracles. I know some of them personally. There are still teenagers who will read bibles everyday, many who are still virgin, many who still obey their parents. Unbelievers laugh at you when you avoid sin and tell you that you are not cool. But deep within them, they don’t like the fact that they have no control over their lives as you do.

They don’t like that you are who they wish they could be, so they want you to join them so that they can feel better. My advice to you is: hold fast what you have lest someone makes you lose it. There is no enjoyment in their wayward life. If you join them, you will regret it because you will lose your peace. Let it be that when the bad behaved ones are ready to change, you will have kept yourself holy and able to help them.

Prayer Point:
Father, let me never be enticed by the people of the world in Jesus’ name.

Hymn 11:

  1. Stand up! Stand up for Jesus,
    Ye soldiers of the Cross!
    Lift high His royal banner,
    It must not suffer loss.
    From victory unto victory
    His army shall He lead,
    Till every foe is vanquished,
    And Christ is Lord indeed.
  2. Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
    The solemn watchword hear;
    If while ye sleep he suffers,
    Away with shame and fear.
    Where’re yeah meet with evil,
    Within you or without,
    Charge for the God of battles,
    And put the foe to rout.
  3. Stand up! Stand up for Jesus!
    Stand in His strength alone;
    The arm of flesh will fail you,
    Ye dare not trust your own.
    Put on the gospel armour,
    And watching unto prayer;
    Where duty calls, or danger,
    Be never wanting there.
  4. Stand up! Stand up for Jesus!
    The strife will not be long;
    This day the noise of battle,
    The next the victor’s song.
    To him that overcometh
    A crown of life shall be;
    He with the King of glory
    Shall reign eternally.
