TOPIC: Everything Is From God? (Open Heaven for Teens 16 May 2024)

MEMORISE: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5

READ: Judges 16:20-21

20 And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.

21 But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.

MESSAGE

Today’s Bible reading tells the story of Samson, who defeated an entire army with the jaw bone of an ass. Samson was really strong; however, his strength was not from him but from God. I know this because every time the Bible talks about his feats, it starts with: “And the Spirit of the Lord came upon him.” (Judges 14:5 – 6:15:14). One day, he was captured by the Philistines, and he said, “I will arise and go out as at other times…” However, he didn’t know that the Spirit of God had left him.

Many people are like Samson; they forget that their talents and gifts were given to them by God. Therefore, when they do something so well and people commend them, they take all the credit instead of giving God the glory. Learn from Herod, who was eaten by worms (Acts 12:21-23). Never forget that the source of your gifts and skills is God. Hence, resist the urge to take credit; otherwise, another person will soon take your place.

KEY POINT

When people commend you, return the glory to God.

HYMN 11 – O Lord My God, When Am In Awesome Wonder,

1.⁠ ⁠O lord my God!
When am in awesome wonder,
consider all
The worlds thy hands hath made
I see the stars,
I heard the rolling thunder
Thy pow’r thro’ out
The universe displayed

CHORUS
Then sing my soul,
My savior God to thee;
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sing my soul,
My savior God to thee;
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

2.⁠ ⁠Then through the woods
And forest glads I wander,
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the tress;
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze;

3.⁠ ⁠And when I think
That God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scare can take it in;
That on the cross,
My burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died
To take away my sin.

4.⁠ ⁠When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home,
What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim,
My God how great Thou art!
