Topic: Why You Must Abide [Teens’ Open Heavens Monday 5th, February 2018]

Memorise: But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22


Read: Psalm 1:1-3

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Bible In One Year: Exodus 37-38, Matthew 23:23-39


MESSAGE:

In John 9:6-7, a man who was born blind met with the Lord and his eyes were opened in a dramatic way. If just one contact could just do that much, how much more when you abide in Him? When you abide in Christ, He makes everything become new. When you abide in Him, there is a new beginning for you. Are you abiding in Christ? If you are in Christ today, and tomorrow you are in sin, then you are not abiding in Him.

Abiding in Christ creates the atmosphere to get the best results from God’s Word. If you are in a hurry to study God’s Word, it will not sink into you, and you will be unable to reach the depth where you can get revelation. You need to read, study, memorize and meditate on the Word, so that you can have good success (Joshua 1:8). Abiding in Him helps you to stay holy. To prosper and become fruitful or successful through Him, you must be holy.


Key Point: Anytime you step out of Christ, you are exposed to the bullets and arrows of the enemy. Stay in Him!


Hymn 7:

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.
