TODAY'S TOPIC: Quenching His Thirst [Teens Open Heavens 26 November 2018]
Memorise No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:4
Read: 2 Samuel 23:15-16 (KJV)
Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 36-37, 1 Peter 3
Any teenager that will satisfy the deepest longing of the King of kings must have certain qualities. They must be people of action. They must be single-minded. They must also be boys and girls of focus; those who are sure of where they are going. One reason football is a famous game is because it is a game of life and focus.
Players may be dribbling and displaying some skills sometimes while with the ball, they may move a little away from the opponent’s goal post, yet they know they are in the field to score goals.
You should make up your mind on what you want to be for the Lord and what you want to accomplish for His glory. If you do not have a specific goal or destination, you will go everywhere others are going. You cannot satisfy Jesus that way.
Another quality that is expected of those who would meet the Master’s deepest need is that they must be boys and girls of sacrifice. To satisfy the Kings of kings, your life must be one of continuous sacrifice of your time, patience, kindness, possessions,
Key Point: Are you focused? Do you have a goal? Are you sure you are not just following the bad wagon?
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.
