OPEN HEAVENS FOR TEENS 29 SEPTEMBER 2019

THEME: PROCRASTINATION

MEMORISE: He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. Ecclesiastes 11:4

Read: Luke 9:59-61

59. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

60. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

61. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

MESSAGE:

Procrastination is the younger brother to laziness.

When you postpone a task that you should do now to a later time, you are procrastinating.

Has God been asking you to preach the gospel to someone but you are procrastinating?

Make sure you look for the fellow and preach to them immediately because you can never tell what will happen to the unsaved soul in the next minute

The story of the young man that our Lord Jesus Christ called to follow Him in the Bible reading of today shows that procrastination not allowed in the kingdom of God.

It is sad that most students procrastinate with their studies. Some wait till when it is a few days to exams before they start studying, when they get to the exam hall and mix answers to questions up, they will say it is the work of the devil.

Those who read from the beginning of the classes till exams day always come out in flying colours.

Those who also do their assignments immediately it is given rather than on the morning of submission also always pass. Procrastination is a major path to failure.

KEY POINT:

Remember that nursery rhyme that says “tick, tick says the time, what you have to do, do quickly.” Whatever you have to do, don’t delay in doing it.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 16-18, Ephesians 1

Hymn 14

1. O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and
Human woes abound.
Let every Christian tongue
Proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!

Chorus:

The Comforter has come!
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Father’s Promise giv’n,
O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!

2. The long, long night is past;
The morning breaks at last;
And hushed the dreadful wail
And fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills
The day advances fast!
The Comforter has come!

3. Lo, the great Kings of Kings,
With healing in His wings,
To every captive soul a full
Deliv’rance brings;
And thro’ the vacant cells
The song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come!

4. O boundless love divine!
How shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell
The matchless grace divine-
That I, a child of hell,
Should in His image shine?
The Comforter has come!
