 Open Heaven for Teens 31 January 2021 – The Benefits Of Righteousness


Topic: The Benefits Of Righteousness [Open Heaven for Teens 31 January 2021]


Memorise: You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” Hebrews 1:9


Read: Psalm 37:16-27


16 Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked;


17 for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the Lord upholds the righteous.


18 The days of the blameless are known to the Lord , and their inheritance will endure forever.


19 In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.


20 But the wicked will perish: The Lord ‘s enemies will be like the beauty of the fields, they will vanish-vanish like smoke.


21 The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously;


22 those the Lord blesses will inherit the land, but those he curses will be cut off.


23 If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm;


24 though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.


25 I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.


26 They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be blessed.


27 Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever.


Bible In One Year: Exodus 22-24; Matthew 20:17-34


MESSAGE:


Righteousness means to live right. A righteous fellow is just and upright. There are so many benefits of righteousness: no matter how terrible the trouble is, the righteous will be delivered. Psalm 34:19 says:


“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”


The prayers of the righteous will be answered unlike those of a sinner which are an abomination unto God. James 5:16b says:


“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”


It will always be well with the righteous. Isaiah 3:10 says:


“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.”


God reveals His secrets to the righteous and it gives them an advantage over others in every aspect of life. Proverbs 3:32 says:


“For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but His secret is with the righteous.”


These and many more are the benefits the righteous enjoy. Don’t you want to enjoy all these?


Prayer Point:


Father, please help me live a righteous life throughout the days of my life in Jesus’ name


Hymn 17: There Shall Be Showers Of Blessing


There shall be showers of blessing

This is the promise of love;

There shall be season refreshing

Sent from the Savior above

Chorus:

Showers of blessing,

Showers of blessing we need;

Mercy drop ’round are falling,

But for the showers we plead.


There shall be showers of blessing

Precious reviving again;

Over the hills and the valleys,

Sound of abundance of rain.

There shall be showers of blessing

Send them upon us O Lord

Grant to us a refreshing;

Come now and honor Thy Word.

There shall be showers of blessing

Oh that today thy might fall,

Now as to God we are confessing,

Now as on Jesus we call!
