Prayer: Dear God You wants us to grow Spiritually.
We have already learnt in order to grow plants need sunlight and
water. The light is Your presence, Jesus is our light. Being watered
is like being filled with the Holy Spirit living & growing in
us. Keep us connected to you like the vine and the branches we can
do nothing without You .Amen
a. “Back Track” Review
Remember we learned that God is like a farmer or a gardener and
we are like his garden. God wants us to grow Spiritually.
In order to grow Spiritually
He must plant the Jesus seed in the right type of soil. Your
heart is like the soil, if your heart is full of anger, bitterness
and pride it is like hard soil.
A Parábola do Semeador Animação video
If you put little effort into your relationship with Jesus it is
like rocky shallow soil. If your heart is full of worldly things
it is like thorny soil. Our hearts need to be like good soft fertile

Lesson #6 Visual Aids
God wants us to grow spiritually.
In order to grow plants need sunlight and water. In order to
grow spiritually we need to spend time in the presence of God
and be filled with the Spirit.
The light is like the presence of God, Jesus
is our light in us and you become a light to others when you
talk to them about Jesus. Being watered is like being filled
with the Holy Spirit.

Without spending time in God's presence and being filled with the
spirit we wither and die like a plant without water or sunlight,
we will not produce fruit. (Hold up withered branch in a pot like
a dead plant)
1. Fill the cup up with water from the watering can and empty it
on a plant, but then the water gets used up and the plant needs
to be watered again. God fills us with his Spirit just like I fill
this cup with water. But just being filled once with His Spirit
isn't enough because the water gets used up. And then we need a
fresh outpouring of God's Spirit in our lives each day. If we want
our Moringa plant to live we need to water it daily especially as
a young plant, and it needs sunlight daily. If we want to grow Spiritually
we need to spend time in God's presence.
2. (Bring out the wilted plant again) This plant I have
here was neglected. It was left in the dark and deprived of water.
Instead of growing and becoming a beautiful plant, it is now a dead
limp, ugly plant. As Christians we need to spend time in God's presence
just as this plant needed to spend time in the light. If we do not
we wither and die Spiritually. We also need to have the Holy Spirit
poured out in our lives just as this plant needed to have water
poured out into it.
3. Give the children balloons let them blow into their balloon
and talk about being FILLED with the Holy Spirit. Then tell children
that if we aren't filled with the Holy Spirit, then we'll be LIFELESS
and let the balloons fly around the room until they all land on
the floor without the air in them!
1. Who lives in our bodies? (The Holy Spirit)
2. Plants need light, who is the light? (Jesus)
3. Plants need water, what is water like? (Holy Spirit.)
Ou não sabeis que o nosso corpo é
o templo do Espírito Santo, que habita em vós,
proveniente de Deus, e que não sois de vós mesmos?

Write the verse on a small piece of paper, roll
it up and put it in a balloon. As you blow up the balloon explain
how God breathed His breath, the Holy Spirit into the first
man – Adam. (Let the balloon deflate) this is
what happened after the fall, but once we give our lives to
Jesus the Holy Spirit then lives in you. Giving you power, (keep
bowing) it’s EXPLOSIVE. Quickly blow up your balloon
until it burst, WOW. get a child to find the verse and read
it out to the class.
6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD:
We thank you Father, for sending your Holy Spirit. Thank you
for breathing life into the church and giving your Spirit to all
who believe. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
