Come And See

Transformed by the Holy Spirit 

Following his conversion on the road to Damascus Saul became known as Paul.  Paul was a key figure in the beginning of the Church.  Paul’s letter to the Romans was written to prepare the way for a visit he planned to make to the Christians living in Rome.  In his letter to the Romans Paul looks forward to going to Rome and meeting the Christians there.  Paul discusses how Christians should live and how God’s Spirit will help and strengthen them.

Read the letter from Paul.  What does it mean  ‘to be free or to be a slave’?

 

Those who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s children.  For the Spirit that God has given you does not make you slaves and cause you to be afraid; instead, the Spirit makes you God’s children, and by the Spirit’s power we cry out to God, Father!  My Father!

 

God’s Spirit joins himself to our spirits to declare that we are God’s children.  Since we are his children, we will possess the blessings he keeps for his people, and we will also possess with Christ what God has kept for him; for if we share Christ’s suffering, we will also share his glory.

Romans 8: 14-17

 

Answer these questions

 

  1. What does Paul call the Christians of Rome?
  2. How would you feel if he called you this?
  3. What message of courage does Paul give to the Christians living in Rome?
  4. How do you think the Christians in Rome felt when they heard this letter?
  5. How do you think they felt about themselves when they read it?
  6. Imagine you belong to the Christian family in Rome.  Write an account of what you thought and felt when you read this part of Paul’s letter.  How and why do you think this is going to affect your life.  Give reasons for your actions.

 

                                               The fruits of the Holy Spirit.

 

Study the reading based on the letter of Paul to the Galatians.  The first friends of Jesus used their new energy given through the Holy Spirit to spread the Good News of God’s love for everyone.  The effects of the coming of the Holy Spirit and the change and transformation the Spirit makes are called the ‘Fruits of the Spirit’, because it is what grows in your heart through the power of the Holy Spirit.  

 

What I say is this: let the Spirit direct your lives, your selfish self is the opposite of what the Holy Spirit wants.  The Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control.

Based on Galatians 5: 16-17, 22-23

 

Think about each of the fruits of the Holy Spirit.   Discuss how they are shown and how they are lived out in everyday life. 

 

  1. love  
  2. joy    
  3. peace
  4. patience       
  5. kindness
  6. goodness
  7. faithfulness
  8. humility
  9. self-control

 

Answer these questions

 

  1. What does Paul tell us that the Holy Spirit gives to everyone?
  2. Which ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ do you think God has given to you?
  3. What ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ would you like to have and why?
  4. Describe which ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ you would like to have and why.  Explain how it would transform you and how you might use it to change and transform your world at home, in class, in school and in the neighbourhood.

Come and See

The events around Pentecost focus on how the power of the Holy Spirit is seen and changes lives.  The power of the Holy Spirit is for everyone.  All Christians are called to share the mission to spread the Gospel message.

 

 

 

Read both passages through, look at the questions, read them again then write answers down. If you can - get a grown up to read it through with you and discuss what it means.

 

Peter’s message explains to the people in Jerusalem that the gift of the Holy Spirit is for everyone.

 

“God has raised this very Jesus from death and we are all witnesses to this fact.  He has been raised to the right hand side of God, his Father, and has received from him the Holy Spirit, as he had promised.  What you now see and hear is his gift that he has poured out on us.  All the people of Israel, then, are to know for sure that this Jesus, whom you crucified, is the one that God has made Lord and Messiah!”

 

When the people heard this, they were deeply troubled and said to Peter and the other apostles, “What shall we do, brothers?”  Peter said to them, “Each one of you must turn away from your sins and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins will be forgiven; and you will receive God’s gift, the Holy Spirit.  For God’s promise was made to you and your children, and to all who are far away—all whom the Lord our God calls to himself ”.

 

Many of them believed his message and were baptised, and about three thousand people were added to the group that day.  They spent their time in learning from the apostles, taking part in the fellowship, and sharing in the fellowship meals and the prayers.

Based on Acts 2: 32-39, 41-42

 

KEY QUESTIONS

 

  1. What changes can you find in people’s feelings, actions and words?
  2. How did the crowd react?
  3. How did the onlookers respond?
  4. What did Peter tell the people of Israel to do?
  5. How did the people respond to Peter’s message?
  6. How did it shape their lives?

Another Come and See activity for this week

 

Paul was originally called Saul.  He was a Jew who came from Tarsus.  In the Acts of the Apostles Paul explains what happened to him and how he was converted.

 

As I was travelling and coming near Damascus, about midday a bright light from the sky flashed suddenly round me.  I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, “Saul, Saul!  Why do you persecute me?”

 

“Who are you, Lord?” I asked.  “I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute,” he said to me.  The men with me saw the light but did not hear the voice of the one who was speaking to me.  I asked, “What shall I do, Lord?” and the Lord said to me, “Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told everything that God has determined for you to do”  I was blind because of the bright light, and so my companions took me by the hand and led me into Damascus.

 

In that city was a man named Ananias, a religious man who obeyed our Law and was highly respected by all the Jews living there.  He came to me, stood by me, and said, “Brother Saul, see again!”  At that very moment I saw again and looked at him.  He said, “The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will, to see his righteous Servant, and to hear him speaking with his own voice.  For you will be a witness for him to tell everyone what you have seen and heard.  And now, why wait any longer? Get up and be baptised and have your sins washed away by praying to him.”

Based on Acts 22: 6-16

 

  1. What do you think about Saul’s story? Does anything surprise you?
  2. How do you think Saul felt when Jesus asked him ‘why do you persecute me’?
  3. Why did Ananias ask Saul to become baptised?
  4. How was Saul transformed by the Holy Spirit?
