OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS THURSDAY 3RD MAY 2018: BE TRULY ROOTED
MEMORISE: Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught,
abounding therein with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:7
Please read: Hebrews 6:1-2
The devil is always out to dish out evil to people, and we are to be ever ready to attack him when
However, before taking on the devil,
be sure of your salvation. The salvation of many
today is questionable. Many are pretenders, and
have never really accepted Jesus Christ into their lives.
How would you know if you are truly saved? It is by assessing the change that your salvation has
brought to your life. Whenever a person gets truly saved, the Holy Spirit baptizes such a person and begins to dwell in the heart of that
fellow. His presence brings about a drastic change for better in the life of that individual
such that, people who used to know that individual will notice the positive changes.
A truly saved person will also hunger and thirst for the true Word of God, and will start to read his/her Bible in order to know as much as possible about Jesus Christ.
The time spent searching the Word
of God and listening to sermons that will build up your faith will enable you to be truly rooted in the
Word of God.
Are you truly rooted?
Check your life to see if there are any changes to show that you are truly saved. If not,
earnestly pray to God and ask Him to save you genuinely and reveal Himself to you.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 6-7
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. Open Heaven 4 May 2018
