Open Heavens For TEENS: Friday 15 September 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - You Are Not Condemned

Topic: You Are Not Condemned [Friday 15, September 2017]

Memorise: “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” - 1 John 3:20

Read: Genesis 3:6-10

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

Bible In One Year: Hosea 1-4. Hymn: Sing Hymn 4


Self condemnation is natural situation that feeds on the human awareness of guilt. In the book of Genesis 3:10, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and without anyone scolding them, they were condemned in their hearts.

Self-condemnation is not the same as sorrow for sin. Sorrow for sin leads to repentance, but self condemnation leads to fear, inferiority complex and low self esteem. It could sometimes be very dangerous in cases where it develops into depression; it has succeeded in sending some people to their early graves. The sorrow of the world is synonymous with guilt and self condemnation, the Bible says if brings death. Guilt defiles human life, produces feelings of anguish, despair, shame and disgrace. Guilt also produces feelings of unworthiness as in the case of the prodigal son in Luke 15:21, in the Name that is above all other names, the power of self condemnation is broken in your life today. If there is any sin in your life, just call on Jesus Christ to wash you with His Blood, He is more than willing to make you clean; forgive yourself and move on, determined not to go back to sin again.

Prayer Point: Father, please let Your perfect love drive away every iota of self-condemnation in my life in the Name of Jesus.
