TOPIC: The Way Up! (Open Heaven for Teens 8 July 2024)

MEMORISE: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4:10

READ: Philippians 2:3–8

3.⁠ ⁠Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4.⁠ ⁠Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5.⁠ ⁠Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6.⁠ ⁠Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7.⁠ ⁠But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8.⁠ ⁠And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 5:81 Acts 26:1-32

MESSAGE

Humility refers to being free from pride or arrogance. Proverbs 3:34 says that God’s grace will be extended to those who are humble before Him. In other words, God gives the humble the ability to achieve great feats. James 4:6 also says that God resists the proud.

Have you ever read the story of the Pharaoh who refused to allow the Israelites to leave Egypt? If you have, you will know that it is a terrible thing to be resisted by God. Such a fellow can never prosper, and I’m sure that you want to prosper. In the name that is above every other name, you will prosper.

Beloved, the more humble you are, the more you will rise. You will become God’s favourite when you humble yourself and fear Him enough to obey all that He says. Once you have the fear of God in you, He will bless you with all that you need to get to the top. Arrogance brings destruction, and it is an attribute of the devil. By the mercies of God, you will not be destroyed, in Jesus’ name. However, you must be humble.

KEY POINT: 

If you want to rise to the top, you must be humble.

HYMN 8: I Am Thine O Lord

1.⁠ ⁠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.

Chorus:
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessd Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.

2.⁠ ⁠Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the power 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.
