I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 1:19-20 (NLT)
There is no junior Holy Spirit. As a father of two elementary-age girls, this verse and statement has become real to me. Every morning on the way to school we acknowledge the Holy Spirit with a, “Good morning, Holy Spirit.” We have the power of the Holy Spirit working in us, through us, and for us. So how do we allow our kids ministries to walk in that power? Here are four ways to begin this amazing journey.
Allow the Spirit to Lead
The culture and obstacles our kids will face are beyond our wisdom. We don't have the ability or power to get them through, but the Holy Spirit was sent here for just that reason. He is our coach, comforter, and teacher.
How do we know it is the voice of God?
My prayer is that however you serve the next generation, you will remember the best place to be is following His Spirit.
