Open Heaven 17 December 2017 (Sunday) Daily Devotiona Message by Pastor E A Adeboye With Hymn
The Lord Jesus Christ gave out several great invitations while He was on earth, and these invitations are still open to us today. If only you can accept them, your life will never be the same again.
He says to us “Come and eat “Come and drink”, and “Come and follow me (John 21:12, John 7:37, Mark 8:34). To follow Him, you must deny yourself of certain desires and lusts, take up your cross daily by being ready to live the sacrificial life that He demands, and put your feet where He trod, while carefully studying the paths
that He walked (1 Peter 2:21).
May God grant you the grace to truly follow Him! Today, on different social media networks, quite a lot of people have
a great followership. There is no better
person to follow than Jesus Christ!
Following some of the characters on social media networks cannot add
anything good to your life, but following Jesus will add both earthly benefits and eternal rewards to you (Mark 10:29-30).
The best thing that can ever happen to you is to follow Jesus! A good follower
of Jesus is a good disciple of Christ.In addition, the Lord invites His children to abide in Him.

In John 15:5, Jesus says if you abide in
Him, you will bear much fruit. Abiding in Him is one secret of fruitfulness in the Kingdom of God. If you want to be able to win a lot of souls to Christ, you must take time to ensure that He permanently resides in you and you in Him. Read: CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE TIPS
It is only then that His life will fully and freely flow through you. If you are still toying with sin, you cannot be fruitful from God’s perspective.
Also, abiding in Him gives the assurance that all your prayers will be answered (John 15:7). When all your requests are granted, what more can you wish for? This is where God wants all of His children to be and not just some of them.
Are all your prayers being answered? If only some have been answered, then
you really need to look at your present relationship with Christ and do some
more work on your love towards Him, your faith in Him, your devotion to Him, your obedience to Him, your service to Him, and your study of His word.

TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE
1.Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days;
Let them flow in endless praise.
2.Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee.
3.Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only, for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
4.Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose.
5.Take my will and make it Thine;
It shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne.
6.Take my love; my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
