The Fruit of the Spirit Lesson.

The discussion is love, joy and patience. All fruit are different and have different flavors. When we ask Jesus to enter our lives, we are asking for His love and His patience. Having Jesus as part of our lives gives us a lot of joy. As you can see, this is not the type of fruit that we can eat. Love, joy and patience are the fruit we need to enjoy in the Holy Spirit.

The first fruit is Love, what is love? Mommy and Daddies love is only a small part. Jesus wants us to love all people around us. It does not matter what color or nationality we are, Jesus wants us to serve one another in love, to help one another like Jesus did. We must be God’s hands and feet on this earth. Ask God to give you this sincere love through his Holy Spirit who lives in you.

The second fruit is joy, to have joy in our hearts is to enjoy working with the Holy Spirit. To give Him the right to change us from the inside. We will find joy in everything we do. Cleaning your room in the morning, helping Mommy with the dishes or helping a friend or a neighbor with joy in your heart, giving the Holy Spirit the right to teach you how to have joy in your heart. When we live for Jesus, we live a life serving him, we put Him first in all we do, and this is what gives you joy in life.

The Verse of the Day.

John 15:1-3

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 

Galatians 5:22-26

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 

Romans 15:13  

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

1 Peter 1:8  

Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,

Romans 14:17  

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.


The Moral of the Story.

1) Love is for all God’s children. It is not a feeling we have in our flesh but a Godly love of unconditional, patience, kindness and forgiveness. We must learn to respect and love others, because God loves us all.

2) We must have joy in all we do spreading the word of God and putting others first will bring us great joy and happiness. Let the Holy Spirit guide you on your journey and you will see great joy in your spiritual life ahead.

Dear Sunday school partners, all around the world. Please refer to your bible and compare to see if you agree with our children Sunday school lessons. 

The stories are not word for word out of the bible, they are created from my own thoughts. I am only human, so please check the stories out first before using them. 

These stories are based on easy words for children to understand, and my own thoughts. You are welcome to use your bible to add or take away. At the bottom there is space for you to give input and comments on the subjects. You are all welcome. We are there to make a difference in a child’s life so please come and let us work together for God’s kingdom.
