All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Through the Holy Spirit, we know God is with us, helping us live as faithful disciples.
The Pentecost unit uses the Bible story included in Acts 2:1-42. On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to the disciples and to the believers in Jesus. The disciples and many believers were gathered in a house when the Holy Spirit came to them in the form of wind and flames. People outside the house who heard the noise commented and laughed derisively. Peter then spoke to the crowd and told them about Jesus. Three thousand people became believers and were baptized.
