Topic: Love Moves God [Teens’ Open Heavens Sunday 4th, March 2018]

Memorise: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Read: Psalm 50:10-12

10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

Bible In One Year: Numbers 32-33, Mark 10:1-31

MESSAGE:

Until you move God, nothing moves. But when you succeed in moving Him, everything else moves. Giving, compassion, faith, service, etc. are some of the things that move God. Whenever it is time to offer something to God, rejoice because it is an opportunity for you to proclaim your love to Him. When you give cheerfully to God, you provoke God to move the earth on your behalf.

Anyone who is in love will do anything for the one he loves. Do you really love God? How have you shown that love? Do you give to God cheerfully? If you truly love God, even when nobody is asking for an offering, you will want to give. A major way to show love to God is by showing love to your fellow men. How generous are you to your friends and neighbors, do they have to beg and beg before you stingily give?

Action Point: John 3:16 says God’s love moved Him to give His best. What has your love moved you to do for God?

Hymn 13
1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?

Chorus:
Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.

2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Savior who does on the cross?

3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?

4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from known sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
