TOPIC: Speak With Love [Open Heaven for Teens 25 September 2023]
MEMORISE: But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: Ephesians 4:15
BIBLE TEXT: Colossians 4:5-6

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Habakkuk 1-3
We live in an age where “speaking your mind” is seen as a sign of having confidence and good self-esteem, but when you speak rashly or abusively, you are not exhibiting the trait of your Heavenly Father. Rather than be spiritually immature, you are to speak the truth to everyone in love, whether to correct, rebuke or commend them. Many erring young believers have deviated from the faith because other believers, who should correct them in love, condemned them to destruction by their words. Little wonder why the rate of depression and suicide keeps increasing.
As a Christian teenager, your words should be such that will bring peace to the troubled heart and direction to a confused soul, and not words that would cause someone to backslide,
Beloved, whenever you want to speak, especially to address a bad situation or correct a fellow’s mistake, first put yourself in their shoes to know if you would accept your own words in good faith. If not, please don’t say it. Don’t add pepper to injury.
Ask for forgiveness if your words or actions have made anyone backslide or vow never to be a Christian.
HYMN 5 – Take My Life And Let It Be
- Take my life and let it
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moment and my days
Let them flow ceaseless praise.
- Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
- Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my king;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
- Take my sliver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as thou shalt choose.
- Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
- Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee
