RCCG JUNIOR ZEAL (AGES: 9-12) ACTIVITIES MANUAL 29TH SEPTEMBER 2019

TOPIC: THE SPIRIT OF GLORY (HOLY SPIRIT)

MEMORY VERSE:
Acts 2:1 – “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.”

BIBLE TEXT: Acts 2:1-4

1. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

CENTRAL TRUTH: The Holy Spirit is the third person in trinity and He is also the Spirit of Glory.

INTRODUCTION: Jesus made it clear that God will send a helper for us. The helper is the Holy Spirit. But many find it difficult to understand who the Holy Spirit really is.

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Holy Trinity, but what does that mean? Where did the Holy Spirit come from?

Is He always with me? How does He help? This lesson is meant to teach you in the depth of who the Holy Spirit truly is and why God sent him.

STUDY GUIDE:

A. WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
Jesus introduced the Holy Spirit to His disciples with these words:
– when the Spirit of Truth comes
– He will guide you into all truth, for He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears.
– He will also declare to you what is to come. – John 16:13
– …………………………..……………………..1 John 5:7

1. ……………………………………………Genesis 1:2
2. ……………………………………………1 Cor.2:10-11
3. ………………………………………..…Psalm139:7-10
4. Surveillance cameras are common today. When we enter a bank we see cameras. So, God`s Spirit observes everywhere we go and is sensitive to our every thought and action.

LIFE APPLICATION: The Holy Spirit is the power of every believer. Peter is the proof of the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. He was a very close follower of Jesus yet afraid that he denied Him, but as soon as he received the Holy Spirit, he became very bold. For you to live a victorious Christian life you need the Holy Spirit.

CONCLUSION: The Holy Spirit plays a key role in the Acts of apostles; without the Holy Spirit, it will be practically difficult for any believer to progress in the work of ministry.

INVITATION: Without Jesus you cannot have the Holy Spirit. Receive Jesus as your saviour. – John 1:12.

DEVOTIONAL GUIDE:

Set aside a regular, definite time: You may want to do it before you leave for school each morning. You may have it when you come from school or you may have it at bedtime.

Find a quiet place, free from disturbances, where you can be alone with God. The Lord Jesus often got up very early in the morning to be alone with God.

But He found other times in the day or night when He could do this too (Matthew 14:23; Mark 1:35; Luke 6:12).

You should choose a time that best suits you and it is the same time each day, so that it becomes a good important in your life.
