TOPIC: Christ In You [Open Heaven for Teens 22 May 2022]
MEMORISE: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Colossians 1:27
READ: 1 John 4:4-6
- Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
- They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
- We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: John 8:21-59, 1 Chronicles 6-7
Today’s Bible reading explains how a believers total surrender to Jesus qualifies him/her to be a habitation of Christ. Being a true child of God means that Jesus lives in you and He is greater than any other. Hence, 1 John 4:4 declares:
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
The content of a person’s heart goes a long way in affecting his or her daily activities, relationships and destiny in general. Some people possess demonic spirits which empower them to do terrible things in the society; some others are possessed by spirits who torment them. This was the case of the mad man of the Gadarene in Mark 5:1-5 , but the moment the man bowed to Jesus, he received his deliverance and became an evangelist of the gospel of Christ.
Is any member of your family under the influence of a demon? Rebuke that spirit today and lead the fellow to accept Jesus into his heart
Christ in you is the hope of your glory.
HYMN: I AM THINE O LORD
- I am Thine, O 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
