Open Heaven For Teens 10th February 2024 Saturday Daily Devotional Message by Pastor E.A Adeboye And Pastor (Mrs.) Folu Adeboye

TOPIC: How To Banish Lust (3)

MEMORISE: He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20

READ: 1 Corinthians 15:33
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

MESSAGE
A wise man once said, if you want to stop a bad habit, start a new one so that the old habit will gradually fade out. To banish lust completely, you should do the following:

1. Choose your friends wisely: Surround yourself with true Christian friends who will dissuade you from sinning against God. Amnon was advised by a bad cousin to sleep with his sister, and this eventually led to his destruction (2 Samuel 13:1-29). Choose friends who will make you do the right things.

2. Maintain godly standards: Despite the temptations that life throws your way, you should be self- disciplined and hold yourself to a high moral standard in all areas of your life.

3. Redirect your passion: For example, if the thought of masturbation comes to your mind, leave where you are immediately to get some fresh air, or find someone to engage in a conversation with to distract yourself. Find a new skill that you can learn, or volunteer to serve at your local community centre. Find something godly and productive to focus your energy on.

KEY POINT:
When lustful thoughts come, redirect your focus

HYMN 5 – JESUS, MY LORD, MY GOD, MY ALL
1. Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,
Hear me, blest Saviour, when I call;
Hear me, and from Thy dwelling place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace;

CHORUS
Jesus, my Lord, I Thee adore;
Oh make me love Thee more and more.

2. Jesus, too late I Thee have sought;
How can I love Thee as I ought?
And how extol Thy matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Thy name?

3. Jesus, what didst Thou find in me,
That Thou hast dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that Thou hast brought
So far exceeding hope or thought!

4. Jesus, of Thee shall be my song,
To Thee my heart and soul belong;
All that I have or am is Thine,
And Thou, blest Saviour, Thou art mine.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
