TOPIC: Who Would You Please? (Open Heaven for Teens 15 May 2024)

MEMORISE: The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whose putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe Proverbs 29:25

READ: 1 Samuel 15:18-30

18 And the Lord sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.

19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the Lord, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the Lord?

20 And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the Lord thy God in Gilgal.

22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

25 Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord.

26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

27 And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.

28 And Samuel said unto him, The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.

29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.

30 Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God.

MESSAGE

Many years ago, I went to minister at a three-day programme. I had preached on faith and other topics and many souls had been saved. Then, I told the pastor that I would like to preach on restitution on the last day. To my surprise, the pastor pleaded with me not to do so. He tagged it ‘hard teaching and said that some of the people that had gathered would leave because of it. I told him that I did not care about a big congregation heading for hell. I also told him that what mattered most to me was preparing the people to go to heaven. I will not please men and displease God.

My dear child, I want you to have this mindset. Many teenagers are in the wrong company today because they want to ‘feel among’. Many have truncated their destinies just because they cared about what the ‘big boys and girls’ in the school think or say about them.

Beloved, be like Daniel who refused to live like the Babylonians and was later found to be ten times better than them. Copy the three Hebrew boys who would rather displease the king than the King of kings. Stand for the truth at all times, even if it will make you lose favour with men.

PRAYER POINT

Would you rather displease God and please men?

HYMN 5 – Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All

1.⁠ ⁠Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,
Hear me, blest Saviour, when I call;
Hear me, and from Thy dwelling place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace;

CHORUS
Jesus, my Lord, I Thee adore;
Oh make me love Thee more and more.

2.⁠ ⁠Jesus, too late I Thee have sought;
How can I love Thee as I ought?
And how extol Thy matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Thy name?

3.⁠ ⁠Jesus, what didst Thou find in me,
That Thou hast dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that Thou hast brought
So far exceeding hope or thought!

4.⁠ ⁠Jesus, of Thee shall be my song,
To Thee my heart and soul belong;
All that I have or am is Thine,
And Thou, blest Saviour, Thou art mine.
