Topic: Whose Image Are You? [Teens Open Heavens 7, May 2018]
Memorise: For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:29
Read: 2 Corinthians 3:18 (KJV)
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Bible In One Year: 1 Kings 14-15, John 1:1-28
When Jesus comes back to the earth, He will stand in the clouds of heaven and call to His own. When Jesus calls to His own, it is only those who are in His image that will hear His call. To be in His image means to have His Spirit within you, which is the Holy Spirit. Only those that are in the image of Christ will make Heaven because Romans 9:8 says that if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. The image of Christ also means the character of Christ. And as a child of God, do you behave like Christ? Are you quarrelsome and disobedient? Are you kind and gentle? Do you tell your friends and even stranger about Christ?
The kind of life you live will determine in whose abode you will end up. If you live a good life by the help of The Holy Spirit, you will end up with the Lord Jesus Christ. But if you live a life of sin, and follow the things of the world, you will end up with the devil. Every man’s final destination will be determined by whose image he/she is.
Prayer Point: Lord Jesus Christ, please let your image be formed fully in me and help me to be like You

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.
