Topic: What’s Your Choice [Teens Open Heaven 12, August 2018]
Memorise: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9
Read: Acts 5:14-16 (KJV)
Bible In One Year: Psalm 93-95, Romans 11:22-36
God has different purposes for calling and using His people. For instance, the purpose for which He created Peter was to show the world that in His hands, a nobody can become so anointed that his shadow would heal (Acts 5:14-16). Peter never went to school. He even confessed that it was difficult to understand Paul’s writings. Yet, even when his shirt mistakenly touched the sick, there was instant healing. This is not to say the God cannot use the highly educated. He took Paul with his outstanding credentials, wore him like a garment, and began to use him. God can use you whether you are educated or not. The important thing is what you want the world to know about God through His manifestation in your life.
What do you want to be remembered for after leaving planet earth? You have the opportunity to decide. Find out the purpose for which God created you by asking the Creator Himself through prayers. Ask Him to not only reveal His purpose for creating you, but to also help you to fulfil that purpose.
Action Point: Prayerfully decide your area of specialization in God’s work.
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.
2. 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
3. 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?
4. 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.
