Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…Jesus sends the Helper", with Stacy A. Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Jesus sends the Helper

This month’s family time topic from the “Sky Ranch Family Devotional: Follow the Leader” is on “Jesus helps and counsels you“ and the weekly discussion is on “Jesus sends the Helper and the benefits of extra help.“

This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking  God to help you explain “the Helper,” the Holy Spirit. At the time of belief, God sends you His Holy Spirit who will help call God’s Word to mind and teach you through His scripture.  Pray for your family to see how much God loves them by sending them a Helper.

Do you have questions or need prayer for your family? Email me at
I will be praying for you!

This week we are in the  6th  Topic and 28th  Family Time (or page  57) of the Sky Ranch Family Devotional “Follow the Leader”…

Family Time 28:
Topic 6: Jesus helps and counsels you…Jesus sends the Helper and benefits of extra help
Talk with God: Read…Scriptures and questions below.
Isaiah 9:6  For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
  • In Isaiah 9:6, who is called the Wonderful Counselor?

John 16:7  (Jesus is speaking)  "But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the  Helper  shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.”
  • In John 16:7, who will come to you if Jesus leaves?

John 14:26  (Jesus is speaking) "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name…”
  • In John 14:26, who is the Helper? 

John 15:26  "When the  Helper  comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, [that is] the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me…”
  • In John 15:26, who is the helper? 
  • In John 15:26, where does He come from?

Walk with God: Discuss… Isaiah says God’s Son would be called a Wonderful Counselor. Then, when Jesus is here, He tells us that He will send you and me “the Helper.” We know the Holy Spirit is the Helper…but who is He? Is He the way that Jesus counsels you?

Prayer suggestion…  Ask God to help you understand the Holy Spirit.
Family Time 28: 
Leader Answers:
  • The Child, the Son
  • The Helper
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The Spirit of Truth
  • The Father
  • Discussion ideas: The Holy Spirit is both the Spirit of God in Ephesians 4:30 and the Spirit of the Lord in Isaiah 11:2. We are told that He rests on people and gives wisdom, understanding, counsel, strength, knowledge and fear of the Lord. God’s Spirit searches the minds and hearts and knows our thoughts and intentions and all things (1 Corinthians 2:10). How can you benefit from receiving this extra help from the Holy Spirit?
