Topic: His Birth, Our Hope [Open Heavens for Teens 25 December 2018]

Memorise: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”Luke 2:11

Read: Revelations 21:3-5 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Haggai 1-2, Revelation 16


Christmas season is a season to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a season to celebrate the hope that the world received when Jesus’ birth was announced. The moment Jesus was born into this world, there was hope for a better life for us. This implies that when Jesus was not yet in the world, there was no hope for a better life. The human race was heading towards destruction.

Is Jesus in your life? Does He reside in your heart? Have you received His as your Lord and personal Saviour? Do you have hope for a better life in eternity? If Jesus is not in your life yet, I advise that you receive Him now before it is too late. Say these words:

Dear Lord, I am sorry for my sins and the life I have lived; please come and dwell in me and make me a new creature in You. Thank you Lord for saving me, in Jesus’ name I pray.

Key Point: When Jesus steps into a place or life, everything changes for the better. Do everything to maintain His presence in your life.

Hymn 10:

  1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    O what peace we often forfeit,
    O what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
  2. Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    Can we find a Friend so faithful?
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness,
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
  3. Are we weak and heavy laden,
    Cumbered with a load of care?
    Precious Savior, still our refuge,
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In His arms He’ll take and shield You;
    You wilt find a solace there.
