Topic: A Beneficial Loss

Read: Matthew 5:29-30

29. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

30. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Memorise
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Hebrews 11:16

Open Heavens For Teens 12 September 2021 Message

The enjoyment and glory awaiting all who finally make it to heaven is so great and cannot be comprehended by human minds. In todays Bible reading, Jesus encouraged us to get there. He said if your right hand will hinder you from entering heaven, cut it off.

When I was a young believer, I queried God about this. If He loved me, why would He suggest that I cut off my right hand to be with Him? Then He showed me the vision of a man running towards heaven as a multitude was singing joyfully and strolling. By the time he got to the gate of heaven, the huge sliding door was closing. As he entered, the gate finally shut leaving his right hand outside. Then an angel came to him and gave him two options; to go out with his body complete or cut off the right hand so the door can be properly shut. If you were the man, which would you choose?

It is Gods will that all men be saved but some prefer to remain in their sin and this makes the heart of God bleed. If you must make it to heaven, you need to walk in obedience and commitment. Cut off anything or anyone luring you into sin or distracting you from focusing on heaven. This loss will be beneficial to you in eternity.

Prayer Point
God, please take away from me anything that’s capable of hindering me from getting to heaven.

Hymns
IN CHRIST ALONE

1. In Christ alone
my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone;
this solid ground;
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm;
What heights of love,
what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when
strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ

2. In Christ alone,
who took on flesh
Fullness of God
in helpless babe
This gift of love
and righteousness
Scorned by the ones
He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live,
I live.

3. There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by
darkness slain
Then bursting forth in
glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious
blood of Christ

4. No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell,
no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of
Christ I’ll stand.
