Dig In to the Bible
· Read: 1 Corinthians 12:1-6, 11; John 14:15-31; 16:5-15
· In This Passage: Jesus talks about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit teaches, advocates, convicts, guides us into truth, tells about the future, and gives each Christian a spiritual gift. All spiritual gifts come from the Holy Spirit.
· Bible Point: The Holy Spirit can live in us.
· Summary Verse: “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord” (1 Corinthians 12:4-5).
· The Holy Spirit can live in us. The Holy Spirit can be a bit of a mystery to kids, but before they try to identify their spiritual gifts and how they can use them, kids need to understand the source of the gifts. Help your kids get to know the Holy Spirit and feel empowered.
· Think About: What’s been your experience with the Holy Spirit?
Dig In to Prayer
· Ask God to help your kids receive his power through belief in Jesus and opening their hearts to the Holy Spirit.
God is at work today. (Romans 8:28)
“For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities- His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.” (Roman 1:20)
All Nature Praise God. (Psalm 19)
Pray for Preteens
Preteens are developmentally at a spiritual tipping point. They’re deciding what and who they believe. Pray that your kids are both open to that message and courageous enough to engage with God.
