c. Teach the Lesson:

Remember we learnt last session that Jesus ascended into Heaven..

But now you may be thinking, How can you say He is in heaven when people say, I invited Jesus to come into my heart and I know He is in my life? You may be wondering, How can that be? If Jesus is in heaven, how can He be in people’s lives at the same time?

The answer is that He lives in us by His Holy Spirit. Remember, a spirit does not have a body. The Holy Spirit can be every place at the same time!

Before Jesus was crucified, He said He would send us the Holy Spirit, whom He called the Helper.

Read John 14:16-20 . . . . .

16  And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- 17  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18  I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

19  "A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20  At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you."

BIBLE READING: Acts 2: 1-4

1 When the Day of Pentecost had 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 the whole house where they were sitting. 3  Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4  And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

When we invite Jesus into our lives, He comes in by His Holy Spirit to teach and guide us and to enable us to make right choices.

Read Titus 3:4-7 . . . . .

4  But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 5  not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, 6  whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7  that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

These verses tell us that we are saved by the death and resurrection of Christ through the Holy Spirit, who gives us new birth and a new life.

Before Jesus returned to heaven to be with his Father, he told his disciples that they would do even greater things than he had done when he was on earth. Now Jesus did some pretty great things, didn't he? He healed the sick. He turned water into wine. He made the blind to see and the lame to walk. Where were the disciples going to get the power to do such great things? Jesus promised them that he would ask the Father to send the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit would give them the power to do great and mighty things.

It happened just as Jesus said it would. On the day which is called Pentecost, the disciples were all together in one place. The Bible tells us that there was a sound from heaven like a mighty rushing wind and it filled the place where the disciples were gathered. Then, there were flames of fire that appeared and rested upon each of them. When these things happened, the disciples were filled with power and began to preach and teach about Jesus. They were able to do things that they had never done before because of the power of the Holy Spirit in them.

Did you know that you and I have that very same power available to us today? The Bible says that "all who are led by the Spirit are children of God." We who are the children of God have the power to do great and mighty things, not in our own strength, but through the power of the Holy Spirit that is within us.

What do the following Bible verses teach us about the Holy Spirit?

1 •  Isaiah 44:3-4

3For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
     and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,
     and my blessing on your descendants.
4 They will spring up like grass in a meadow,
     like poplar trees by flowing streams.


2 •  Joel 2:28-29

28 "And afterward,
     I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
     your old men will dream dreams,
     your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
     I will pour out my Spirit in those days."


3 •  Zechariah 12:10

10 "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son."


4 •  Matthew 3:11

"As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."


5 •  Acts 2:1-4

1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.

  2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.   3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.   4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[ a ] as the Spirit enabled them.


6 •  Acts 2:5-7; 11-12

5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven.   6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken.   7 Utterly amazed, they asked: "Aren't all these who are speaking Galileans?  

11-we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!"   12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, "What does this mean?"


7 •  Acts 2: 11-17; 22-24

14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.   15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning!   16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17 "'In the last days, God says,    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

22 "Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.   23 This man was handed over to you by God's deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men,put him to death by nailing him to the cross.   24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him."
