God created us in His image, and He sent His Son, Jesus, to show us the way to live. He also knew we would need help; that’s why He sent us the Holy Spirit. With the power of the Spirit, we can produce fruit that points others to Jesus. Every month, kids discover something about God’s character and how they can reflect or respond to that character because they are created in God’s image. We call those Life-Apps. And this summer we’re discovering how several of these Life-Apps show up specifically in what the Apostle Paul calls the fruit of the Spirit.
Our Bible Story for week one of Power Up is 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8a-
Love Is . . .
SAY THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
Love others because God loves you.
DO THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
Find a banana and use a marker to write, “The fruit of the Holy Spirit produces love!” on the fruit. As you say goodbye hand your child the banana and tell them to, “love others because God loves you!”
“The fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient,
kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself.”
Galatians 5:22-23a, NIrV
