Almost every fast-food restaurant these days offer a Junior size of their best sandwiches and sides--something for the kids or for those wanting to watch their calorie intake. (What's funny about that is the current Junior size is probably the original size of the sandwich itself before we decided we needed to eat a half-pound of meat to be satisfied, but that's another story:)
I tell you this to explain something about the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13 says that we are all placed into the Body of Christ by the same Holy Spirit. That means that children don't receive a Junior-sized Holy Spirit--they receive all of Him and His power--just as much as adults. Sometimes, we underestimate what can happen through the life of Holy-Spirit filled kids. I don't want to be in that boat.
In February, our kids at Grace will be challenged in the area of Kindness. Would you pray that there are awesome, mind-blowing, Holy Spirit, breakthrough moments each Sunday? We want to see God show up in amazing ways so that kids, parents, and volunteers can't wait to see what God will do next. I have been thinking through and praying about practical challenges to give the students each week to live out their faith in the area of kindness--I'm excited to see what God will do each week through them, and I'm also excited to hear the stories from the kids as we'll be giving time to hear testimonies.
