Topic: Losing Your Worth [Open Heavens for Teens 11 May 2019]
Memorise: “Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?” – Proverbs 6:27
Read: Proverbs 6:25-29
25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
Bible In One Year: 2 Kings 1-3, John 3:22-36
There is nothing that cheapens a man like fornication; there is nothing that destroys the destiny of a man, family, community or nation like sin. Proverbs 14:34 says sin comes with reproach. If you observe a decline in your grades or see that you have suddenly become an item of manipulation in the hands of men, check your spiritual state. It might be that you have dabbled into sin.
Proverbs 6:26 says: “For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.”
This is what fornication does. It takes away a person’s worth and turns him/her into a mere commodity. Fornication is very deadly, in fact, nothing kills faster than fornication. Stay as far away from it as you can. The Bible says you should flee from every appearance of evil. This means that even if it just looks like fornication, run from it, don’t wait to confirm if it is really a sin, run! Be wise.
Key Point: When you are in the right standing with God, you have everything under your feet.
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 theres 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 or a fear, not a sigh or 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 or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed 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 favor He shows, for 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.
