If ever kids needed a helper to live out a radical faith it’s now.
If we believe that the Holy Spirit is invaluable, if we believe that The Holy Spirit of God was sent to us to help, lead us guide us in our lives?
If we believe that the Holy Spirit gives us power to be a witness why would we not want kids to be filled with the Holy Spirit?
If we believe that the Holy Spirit gives us the ability to live a life of love, joy and peace why wouldn’t we want our kids to experience this?
Why would we not want our kids to do these things to have these things as part of their faith. I believe that we have in many ways removed the power and mystery of the Gospel when we ignore the Holy Spirit. I am all for partnering with parents and strive to come up with more ideas to do so but let’s not forget our most strategic partner in ministry to kids the Holy Spirit of God.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
7He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
