Image of Open Heaven For Teens

MEMORISE: The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life. Job 33:4

READ: John 16:12-14

  1. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
  2. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
  3. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 23:27-56, 1 Kings 6-7


Any time I have the opportunity to teach children about the person of the Holy Spirit, a question always pops up which is: Mummy, was the Holy Spirit present before the day of Pentecost? and I always answer with Yes. He has been before the creation of the universe. The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity and He works hand in hand with God and Jesus Christ. In Genesis 1:1-31 , He was instrumental to the creation of the world. Amidst the darkness, He moved and darkness became light.

Furthermore, the Holy Spirit acted as a conscience, leading people to know the difference between right and wrong. It is the same experience when you are about to do something wrong; He instructs you not to or suggests the right thing to do, but He won’t force or struggle with you (Genesis 6:1-3 ). For instance, Samson experienced the move of the Holy Spirit often but refused to obey His instructions. Gradually, the Holy Spirit left him and he lost his power (Judges 16:4-21 ). If you can submit yourself to the leading of the Holy Spirit, you will never make any regrettable mistake in life.


Desire and pursue a beautiful relationship with the Holy Spirit henceforth.

HYMN: O Spread The Tidings Round

  1. Oh, spread the tidings round,
    Wherever man is found,
    Wherever human hearts and
    human woes abound;
    Let every Christian tongue
    proclaim the joyful sound:
    The Comforter has come!

The Comforter has come,
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heaven,
The Father’s promise given;
O spread the tidings ’round,
wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!

  1. Lo, the great King of kings,
    with healing in His wings,
    To every captive soul a full
    deliverance brings;
    And thro’ the vacant cells
    the song of triumph rings:
    The Comforter has come!
  2. O boundless Love divine!
    how shall this tongue of mine
    To wond’ring mortals tell
    the matchless grace divine:
    That I, a child of hell,
    should in His image shine!
    The Comforter has come!
  3. Sing, till the echoes fly
    above the vaulted sky,
    And all the saints above
    to all below reply,
    In strains of endless love,
    the song that ne’er will die;
    The Comforter has come!a
