Topic: Blasphemy Severs Link [Teens Open Heavens 3 November 2018]
Memorise: “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:“ Mark 3:29
Read: Mark 3:48-30 (KJV)
Bible In One Year: Jeremiah 36-37, Philemon 1
As long as the branch is connected to the vine, what flows in the vine will automatically flow into the branch. If you want the life of God to continue to flow through your veins, do all it takes to stay connected to Him. You will observe that most trees do not produce fruits except through their branches. In other words, when the tree passes nutrient to the branches, it is to nurture it and keep it alive as well as to make it fruitful. There is no way a branch will produce fruits if it is severed from the vine. If you notice that you are becoming dry and no longer feel His presence, check yourself to see if you are still connected to the Vine. If you are a talkative person, you might not be sensitive enough to the Holy Spirit to hear Him when He tells you to stop talking. This could strain your relationship with Him to a point where the link between you and Him becomes broken.
Have you talked carelessly or gossiped to a point of emptiness? Go to the Lord and cry for help in bridling your tongue. Don’t let your tongue destroy what the blood of Jesus has purchased for you.
Lord Jesus, please let the link between you and I never be broken. Pray for orphans all over the world to experience God’s love and come to Him.
1. I am Thine 0 Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
