flowing in power

Get comfy and everyone takes it in turn to hold their thumbs out and wiggle them up or down to express how they are and how their week has been. Allow everyone to share why. Perhaps share what God has been doing in your life this week. Why not take a moment to pray about what comes up?

Filling station: you’ll need a few different size containers and 2 large containers or bowls and some water. Each person picks a container and has to guess how many times they will have to fill it and empty it to fill up to a mark on one of the big containers. The person who gets closest in their guess wins. If you want to have fun outside you can adapt the game by putting some holes in the containers and doing a relay to fill one container from another – each team racing against the other [point: being filled with the Spirit like water]

Grab a tasty snack and drink and join Sian-Lee on today's video as we look at our story; John 7:37-39

Family Discussion questions:

  • Can you think of a time where you felt you needed God to meet you with His love?

  • Why do you think the Bible sometimes describes the Holy Spirit like water?

  • What do you think it means to be ‘thirsty’ for God?  

Find a space with your cushion somewhere, bring your journal or paper and pen with you. 

Play this worship music video and spend some time praying to Jesus to pour out more of the Holy Spirit upon your life, think of the things you need help with, or feel are difficult at the moment, ask Him to provide you with special help for those situations. Ask for opportunities to share this life with others by praying for them to know Jesus or receive His life.  

If you want to as a family, make a tent or den in one of the bedrooms and have a picnic in it. During the picnic thank God for his faithfulness to you as a family and also invite everyone to take a drink of water as a picture of receiving more of the Holy Spirit. Pray for one another to receive a fresh filling of His love.
