Topic: He Sends On Errands [Teens’ Open Heavens 2, April 2018]

Memorise: And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 15:16

Read: Luke 10:1-3, 17 (KJV)

1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.

2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

Bible In One Year: Joshua 8-9, Luke 8:22-56

MESSAGE:

God sends on errands. He told Moses that He was sending him to Pharoah. He is looking for reliable people that He can send on errands. In mark 16:15-16, He sent us to the whole world to preach the Gospel and bring forth fruits. Many of the problems we have today are as a result of our refusal to go forth as commanded. But if we repent and decide to go, signs will follow us. In Luke 10:1-3, 17, Jesus sent out 70 people in twos and when they returned they were full of joy and testified that even the demons obeyed them.

In your home, would your parents send you on an errand and you would refuse? You will most likely not. What if the president of your country sends you on an errand? You will feel privileged to carry it out. Now why would the Presidents of presidents send you on an errand and you will make excuses? God has sent us to preach the Gospel to the world, and He expects results.

Key Point: If you carry out God’s errands perfectly and within the time specified, He too will honour you by doing things for you

Hymn 4:

I. God give us Christian homes!
Homes Where the Bible is loved and taught,
Homes where the master’s will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty
Thy love hath wrought;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

2. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

3. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother in queenly quest,
Strives to show others Thy way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honoured guest;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

4. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Children are led to know,
Christ in His beauty who loves them so,
Homes where the altar fire burn and glow;
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!
