Topic: Knowledge puffeth up (Open Heaven 19 July 2020)
Memory verse: And if any man thinks that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. – 1 Corinthians 8:2
Read: john 9:39-41(KJV)
Bible in One Year: Hosea 1-7
39 And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”
40 Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, “Are we blind also?”
41 Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, ‘We see.’ Therefore your sin remains.
Open Heaven 19 July 2020 Hymn 2: all to Jesus I surrender
All to jesus I surrender,
All to him I freely give,
I will ever love and trust him,
In his presence daily give.
I surrender all, I surrender all.
All to thee, my blessed saviour,
I surrender all.
All to Jesus I surrender,
Humbly at His feet I blow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me, Jesus, take me now
All to Jesus I surrender
Now I feel the sacred flame
Fill me with thy love and power
Let thy blessing fall on me.
All to Jesus I surrender,
Now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation
Glory, glory to his name
Open Heaven 19 June 2020 Saturday MESSAGE:
“Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth”
One of the problems facing this generation is called “too know” in Nigeria local parlance. Professors who have this problem, but now that we have the internet, everyone feels wise. Knowledge is good, but you must be careful that it does not make you puffed up.
When something is puffed up, it is difficult to get something into it because it is already full of air. One who feels he has a lot of knowledge may not be able to acquire more.
If you feel that you know all about computer for example, when someone comes to teach about them, you will have the tendency to ignore the fellow. No matter how much knowledge you have, your disposition should be that of someone who knows nothing.
The phrase ‘knowledge puffed up’ means that the knowledgeable is often proud. God hates pride. James 4:6 says that God resists the proud. To resist means to push against the enemy. When someone is teaching, and you begin to correct the fellow in your heart, watch out: pride has set in. you are calling for God resistance.
Lastly, ‘knowledge puffed up’ often means that the knowledgeable is so swollen up, that he goes about boasting. Themselves to be wise. Becomes fools. There is no wisdom being talkative. Wise people talk when necessary.
Get as much knowledge as you can, but never get puffed up. Just like our memory verse for today says, no matter how much you know; never thinks that you know it all.
