OPEN HEAVEN 6 SEPTEMBER 2020 MEMORIZE: Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24
You know that you have met the black sheep of a home when you see a person who only cares about what he/she can get from the family.
Good children, no matter how wealthy the family is, are more interested in increasing the family’s wealth.
Black sheep exist in Gods family too. They only care about what they can get from God and never bother about what they can give to Him.
They show up when the Pastor wants to pray for business growth but are absent during evangelism.
Thankfully, God also has many children who are committed to giving all to Him, hungry to make Him happy every day.
To which category do you belong?. Always check to see if God needs anything to be done.
Ask your Pastor how you can be of service to God.
Organise seminars, evangelisms, Bible Study meetings, invite speakers to teach the people more about the Bible, raise ideas on how the Church can grow.
Become obsessed with doing something for God. Mordecai told Esther:
“and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14
Whatever position you occupy in the Church or secularly, always seek an opportunity to do something for God through it.
Whatever it is you have professional network, money, influence or physical strength, let your thoughts always be How can I use this to advance the kingdom of God?
The child who is always thinking about giving to the family rather than receiving is the one who will enjoy the best the father of the home has to offer.
David was always thinking of what he could do for God. Even when God told him not to build His temple, he provided all that was needed for it.
God blessed him so much that he had all he ever wanted, and even more.
If you are constantly thinking of what you can do for God, He will pour the best blessings upon you.
OPEN HEAVEN 6 SEPTEMBER 2020 HYMN
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 ceaseless 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.
