Pentecost

Waiting for the Promise

Waiting for the Promise

About 120 follower’s of Jesus were assembled in Jerusalem waiting for the promise of the Father. The Holy Spirit was given to fill them with the power needed to be His  fearless witnesses  “unto the uttermost part of the earth”, guide them into all truth and bring to remembrance all Christ had taught them.  After being baptized with the Spirit on the day of Pentecost, Peter preached his first sermon and about 3,000 souls were added to the church. (Do you remember when Moses came down with the Law, he had to administer judgement as a result of the people’s idolatry and about 3,000 people perished?)  “…for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” 2 Corinthians 3:6.

My class this year is 2nd and 3rd graders. I added some “fill in the blank” to go with this lesson page … the kids are learning to look up bible verses so it really teaches them about the Holy Spirit. Here are the verses I chose…
*Acts 1:8
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ me to be a witness for Jesus. (Empowers) if it helps, you can write the first letter in the blank!

*John 14:16
He lives in me _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .
(forever)

*John 16:13
He guides me into all _ _ _ _ _. (Truth)

*Romans 8:26
He _ _ _ _ _ for me. (Prays)

*John 16:8
He convicts the world of _ _ _. (Sin)

*Romans 8:16
He bears witness with my spirit that I am a _ _ _ _ _ of _ _ _. (Child of God)

If you have time have the kids look up 1st Thess. 5:19 and explain that the Spirit can be quenched which will take some explanation and definitions. I drew a picture of a hose watering a flower and then asked them what happens when the hose gets a kink…. or some electrical appliance that loses its power when the cord gets unplugged… they can write this verse wherever there is room on the paper.
