Topic: Speak [Teens Open Heaven 5, August 2018]

Memorise: Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. Colossians 4:6

Read: Ephesians 4:29 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Psalm 75-77, Romans 6


Yesterday, we learnt that it is better to listen more than you speak. It is however dangerous to never speak. God gave us mouth so that we can express ourselves. So when you are in need of help, it is with your mouth that you can call for help. It is through your mouth that people can know how much knowledge you have in your head. If you are wise a s Solomon, but you always keep everything to yourself, nobody will ever know how wise you are. So also in your school, church or community, if you do not speak when you need to, people will not know your ability to handle certain responsibilities. If you also do not speak up when you need help, you may end up suffering in silence.

Is an adult touching you inappropriately? Speak up! Are you being bullied or cheated? Speak up! On the reverse, do you have great ideas that can help your school, community or church? Speak up! Are you tired of certain situations in your life? Tell God!

Key Point: Never be afraid to speak up because if you never do, you may never get help when you need it the most.

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 vict’ry unto vict’ry
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 yelling 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 Ilesh 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.
