Topic: What Do You Fear? [Open Heavens for Teens 2 December 2018]

Memorise: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Ecclesiastes 12:13

Read: Luke 12:4-5 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 47-48, 1 John 1


A wise person is identified by what he fears. After commanding you to ‘Fear not’ in so many passages of the Bible, the Lord commanded you to fear only one being; the Almighty God. According to Hebrews 5:7, the only person Jesus Christ feared was the Father. People fear different things to today, some fear Human beings, especially those in power, the wealthy and the influential, some fear the devil, demons and their agents.

If you can rightly choose what to fear in the midst of several fear producing situations, you are wise. Jesus Christ feared God Almighty, hence He had no need to fear anyone else. Joseph too feared God to the extent of not caring about what will happen to his future and his budding career. Today people fear what people will think of them if they do the right thing than they fear God. Who and what do you fear?

Prayer Point: Heavenly Father, please remove the fear of anyone or anything from my heart, fill my heart with Your fear alone 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.
