Temperance Open Heavens for Teens 11 October 2020



Memorise: Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Philippians 4:5


Bible Reading: Galatians 5:22-23


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, Joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Bible Reading In One Year: Isaiah 45-47; Colossians 3:1-25


MESSAGE:


Temperance is an indispensable quality every child of God must possess. It is a fruit of the Spirit. It means to subject your body under the leading of the Holy Spirit.


After our wedding over fifty years ago, my wife and I agreed that the both of us must not be angry at the same time. One day, while travelling from Ilesa to Lagos, something made her angry. She started talking and I also became angry. But I was trapped in the car because I was the one driving. To avoid an outburst which would break our agreement, I stopped the car, parked on the road and started walking back to Ilesa leaving her and our baby. Having walked some miles, I stopped by a village, bought some fruits, ate some and took some back to her as peace offering. Little did I know that she was already afraid when I didn’t return on time, but when she saw me, her fears died down and so did the matter.


If you still have a problem dealing with anger, you need to work on yourself. You can control that temper. Psalms 119:165 says:


“Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”


The bible also says that anger rests in the bosom of fools (Ecclesiastes 7:9). Don’t be a fool!


Prayer Point:


Father, please give me the grace to subject my body to the leading of the Holy Spirit as from today.


Hymn: Take My Life , And Let It Be


Take my life and let it be

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;

Take my moments and my days,

Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

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.

Take my voice and let me sing

Always, only for my King;

Take my lips and let them be

Filled with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold

Not a mite would I withhold;

Take my intellect and use

Every power as Thou shalt choose.

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.

Take my love, my Lord, I pour

At Thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself and I will be

Ever, only, all for Thee.
