My favourite food is fruit. How many of you here likes fruit? What is your favourite fruit? (Have a discussion with the children about their favourite fruit.) All fruit have a different taste, shape and color.The word of God tells us about the fruits of the spirit.
As sinners we need to come to Jesus to give our hearts to Him. "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Once we have accepted God, we become His property, the fruits of the spirit will start growing within us. The fruit that is within us is given to us by God. The awesomeness of this gift is love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, patience and self-control. Through God’s power and love, we can be patient. A wise person is patient and does not just lose their temper.
Christ is patient so that more people can be saved. He is our example. As we are all different, we have within us different fruits. We serve a three in one God, God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. We are not able to see the Holy Spirit, but He is all around us, He is our Helper and He will guide us through life.
If you stand outside and you lift your hands into the air and you feel a slight wind blowing, that is what the Holy Spirit is like. He waits upon each ones needs. The gentle Holy Spirit wants us to invite Him into our daily lives. Do this and you will see the fruits growing in your life.
The Spirit plants the good seed in our lives and God waters it so that we have good fruit in our lives and become good and faithful children. It's like a car that needs petrol to run, the Holy Spirit is the same, you need to invite Him. You need to love the Holy Spirit and you need to study the Word of God. That is our petrol to run smoothly on God’s path to His kingdom.

With each Sunday school lesson, I try to give the kids special verses, activities and pictures to color in. Below you will find the download links for the special verse of the day and more. Please feel free to use them as you like for personal use in your own Sunday school classes. The wording and any images on this website are not to be sold or reproduced in any publications online or offline. I drew these pictures so that you could add your own verses to them for the day. Color the edgings with marker pens and a little bit of glitter. You can hand them out to the children to take home as bible verses for the day, even better if each child has a separate book, they can paste it into their own book.

And I will pray to Father, and he will give you another helper that he may abide with you forever.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to you remembrance all things that I said to you.
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
The Holy Spirit is the gate way to heaven. He is our Friend, our Comforter, our Teacher and our Guide.The more that we fellowship with Him, the more we become aware of Him. He is waiting patiently for you and me to work together and to teach and guide us in all our ways.

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.
