Open Heaven For Teens 26th January 2023 MESSAGE
Words are very powerful; they can either mould or mar someone’s destiny. As a child of God, you cannot afford to be reckless with your words because there is power in your tongue. One of the things I don’t encourage in the church is jesting or comedy. You cannot use abusive words or make jest of people and call them jokes! If you are into comedy as a form of entertainment, you really should be careful and know your boundaries.
Many comedians make fun off anointed Ministers of God and constituted authorities; some even change the names of God with profane words to excite their audiences. This is unacceptable.
In today’s Bible text, forty-two children lost their lives for laughing at the outward appearance of a genuine man of God. There are consequences for every wrong word you speak, so it is better to be quiet than to say the wrong things
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you bridle your tongue
HYMN 21 – I WANT TO BE LIKE JESUS
1. I want to be like Jesus,
So lowly and so meek;
For no one mark’d an angry word,
That ever heard Him speak,
2. I want to be like Jesus,
So frequently in prayer;
Alone upon the mountain top,
He met his Father there.
3. I want to be like Jesus,
I never, never find
That He, though persecuted was
To anyone unkind.
4. I want to be like Jesus,
Engaged in doing good;
So that of me it may be said
“He hath done what he could.”
5. I want to be like Jesus,
Who sweetly said to all,
“Let little children come to Me;”
I would obey the call.
6. But oh I’m not like Jesus,
As anyone may see;
O gentle Saviour, send Thy grace,
And make me like to Thee
