Topic: Be Diligent [Open Heavens for Teens 25 November 2020]

Memorise: The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. Proverbs 13:4

Read: Proverbs 22:29

29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 34-35, 1 Peter 2:1-25

MESSAGE:

Diligence is doing something persistently. It is doing something until you become perfect at it. There are several examples of those who were persistent in the Bible and got the reward. Daniel was diligent in learning the Chaldean language and in His service to the king. This later resulted in promotion. David was also diligent at his watch over his father’s flock, the skills he acquired at it helped in the defeat of Goliath. Whether in your academics or service to God, it is expected of you to be diligent. Ecclesiastes 9:10 says:

“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.”

Although no one is expecting you to die now, while you are young and agile, do everything diligently. So even if it is a chore that you are asked to do, do it with all your might. Don’t give room for mediocrity.

Key Point:

Only the diligent rises and stays at the top.

Hymn: What Can Wash Away My Stain?

  1. What can wash away my stain?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
    What can make me whole again?
    Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Chorus:
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow!
No other fount I know, .
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2.For my cleansing this I see –
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my pardon this my plea –
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3.Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus:
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4.This is all my hope and peace.
Nothing but the blood of Jesus:
His is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
