Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit Teaches Us

Last Sunday Discovery Point: 
Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit Teaches Us 
One of the Holy Spirit’s most important jobs is to teach us more about God. When we trust Jesus as our Savior, the Spirit begins teaching us things we wouldn’t be able to learn any other way. And He is the best teacher! He tells us what we need to know to obey God. Living for Jesus can be difficult at times, but the Holy Spirit teaches us how to be like Him. When we listen to the Spirit’s guidance and obey His teachings then we will have a closer relationship with God and truly learn how to love others. Scriptures used: 1 Corinthians 2:6-16

Memory Verse:

“When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” Luke 12:11-12 NIV

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:

Gather various coins and ask your child to identify the worth of each coin. Then combine two or three coins together and ask him or her to identify the combined worth of the coins. Use this example to teach your child that the Holy Spirit is a PERFECT teacher – He doesn’t teach anything against God’s word. Ask your child to consider how they would feel if someone deliberately taught him or her the wrong amount for the coins and compare His or her reaction to worldly teachings about God (e.g. “There is more than one way to go to Heaven”). Help your child’s understanding by admitting that sometimes it’s more comfortable to believe a certain way (like falsely believing that a quarter is worth more than 25 cents), but because the Holy Spirit is a good teacher He will teach us truth. Encourage your child to share the truth of the gospel with people they know who may not have a relationship with the Lord.

Daily Prayer:

Thank You, God, for giving us our teacher, the Holy Spirit. Help us listen to His teachings and Your word. Thank You for loving us and sending Jesus to die for our sins. Amen.
