Teach Intentionally..."Family Time…Accept Jesus’ help", with Stacy A. Davis ~ Bible Teacher and Sky Ranch Board Member

Family Time…Accept Jesus’ help

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 “Receive Jesus’ help – accept it.“

This week in your family time, I would encourage you to prepare by praying for your family and asking God to help your family learn about receiving the Holy Spirit.  Pray that your family will desire to receive the help the Jesus offers and will want to pray and ask for it.

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

Talk with God: Read…Scriptures and questions below.
Acts 2:36   "Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ-- this  Jesus  whom you crucified."  37  Now when they heard [this], they were pierced to the heart…38  And Peter [said] to them, "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
  • In Acts 2:38, what do you receive if you repent?

Mark 1:8   (John is speaking about Jesus) "I  baptized  you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy  Spirit."
  • In Mark 1:8, what does Jesus baptize you with?

1 John 4:13   By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. …15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
  • In 1 John 4:15, for Jesus to abide in you, what do you need to confess?

Romans 8:16  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God…
  • In Romans 8:16, how do you know you are children of God?

Walk with God: Discuss… The Holy Spirit is a gift from God and He is there to help you. How do you receive the Holy Spirit’s help?

Prayer suggestion… Pray to receive the Holy Spirit.

Family Time 32: 
Leader Answers:
  • The gift of the Holy Spirit
  • The Holy Spirit
  • Jesus is the Son of God

  • Discussion ideas: You need to pray, repent of your sin and ask for forgiveness. Romans 10:9 tells us…that if you confess with your mouth Jesus [as] Lord, and believe in your heart, you shall be saved. Then, ask Jesus and will you receive the Holy Spirit. Are you willing to accept Jesus’ help?
