Open Heavens For TEENS: Monday 18 September 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Know Your Limit

Topic: Know Your Limit [Monday 18, September 2017]

Memorise: “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” - Romans 12:3

Read: Romans 12:3-10

3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:

5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Bible In One Year: Joel 1-3. Hymn: Sing Hymn 5

MESSAGE:

There is a common saying that no man is an island. The meaning of the title 'Know Your Limit' is explained in the memory verse for today. God inspired several individuals in the writing of the Bible, there is no book of the Bible that is complete in itself as each one depends on others to give complete knowledge of any aspect of Biblical teachings. Some tell the beginning, while others tell the middle or tail end of the story. For example, the doctrine of salvation, baptism, communion, divine healing, sin and the second coming of Jesus, cannot be fully understood by reading any one of the Bible.

Therefore, in order for us to remain in tune with the Holy Ghost, we as Christians must be conscious of our limitations as human beings. God will not give all the gifts needed for the body of Christ to one individual. This is the only way to remain humble and teachable, the only way to focus on the Giver always, rather than the given. This is the only way to be "approved unto God".

Prayer Point: Father, please help me to know my limits and be focused on the Spirit in Jesus' Name.
