KEEP YOURSELF

2017 – SATURDAY 21 JANUARY

KEEP YOURSELF
DEUTERONOMY 4:9
Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren,

1. TAKE HEED
In order to keep yourself strong, you must take heed to your condition first.
YOU WILL NEVER CORRECT – WHAT YOU CONTINUE TO COVER
Taking heed means you take stock of your present condition and identify the areas of weakness you need to attend to.

2. KEEP YOURSELF
To keep yourself – means to tend and cultivate your life for fruitfulness.
Consider the following areas needing to be diligently kept.
A. Keep yourself in the love of God
B. Keep yourself in the word of God.
C. Keep yourself in the house of God.
D. Keep yourself in the Spirit of God.

3. LEST YOU FORGET
Sunday is memorial day – in our world – where we come to remember and celebrate the great things God has done for us. When you see the simplicity of faith and fellowship happening in church – it is to help you remember the greatness of God’s love – for the rest of the week.
Make sure you choose to look for, and see the presence and power of God in church.
Diligently remember the things God shows you – of His love and grace.

4. STORE THEM IN YOUR HEART
Saddest thing I have ever seen – are those people who have known the love of God, but have allowed God’s word to depart from their hearts.
Meditate upon the good things of God until His word takes root and produces faith in your heart. Then diligently water it, so that it flourishes in your life.

5. TEACH THEM TO YOUR HEIRS.
Your children and grandchildren inherit what you possess and pass down.
YOU CAN ONLY PASS ON – WHAT YOU HAVE POSSESSED.
The greatest joy in life, is teaching your children Godly principles, and seeing them passed on to your grandchildren.
YOU TEND YOUR OWN HEART – BY TEACHING.
When you teach others, you are tending the truths sown in your own heart.
Most people share opinions – instead of the Godly precepts – they have possessed.

KEEP YOURSELF IN GODLINESS – AND GOD WILL KEEP YOU IN HIS BLESSING
