Topic — Fruit of the Spirit; Gentleness [Open Heavens for Teens 14 December 2018]

Memorise: And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 2 Timothy 2:24

Read: Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Amos 1-3, Revelation 5


The present world is a very aggressive one, and it gets even more aggressive by the day. By default, humans will want to pay aggression back with aggression. Your classmate screams at you, the first thing that comes to mind is to scream back at the fellow. A stranger treats you harshly, and you automatically want to repay him with that same coin.

This might be the order of the day in the world, but as a child of God it is not allowed at all. The Holy Spirit within us doesn’t give room for aggression at all. You are charged to be gentle at all times to everyone you come in contact with. You must not be quarrelsome, you must not be lousy, and you must not be talkative. Your presence should never in any way cause trouble or take away the peace of another fellow. Let aura speak gentleness at all times.

Prayer Point: Sweet Holy Spirit, please teach me to be gentle at all times.

Hymn 13:

  1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
    Is the love of God flowing through you?
    Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
    Are you ready His service to do?

Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.

  1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
    Are you burdened for those that are lost?
    Have you urged upon those who are straying
    The Savior who does on the cross
  2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
    Is it a daily telling for Him?
    Have you spoken the word of salvation?
    To those who are dying in sin?
  3. We cannot be channels of blessing
    If our lives are not free from sin;
    We will barriers be and a hindrance
    To those we are trying to win.
