Who is the Holy Spirit?
Your child will hear Peter say that the Holy Spirit is God’s gift to us that comes through Jesus, the Messiah. Parents, this provides a great opportunity for you to tell your child that the Holy Spirit is as much God as Jesus and the Father are.
What can the Holy Spirit do?
This story recreates the scene where the Holy Spirit gives people the power to proclaim God’s wonderful deeds in different languages. This will show your son or daughter that the Holy Spirit enables people to testify and glorify God’s name.
In addition, your child will observe the people’s expressions change from pensive to joyous when they are filled with the Spirit. This will help your child realise that the Holy Spirit brings His people joy, love, and peace. At this point, you can further explain to your child that God gives us the Holy Spirit to be our helper and comforter.
That’s not all! The Bible App for Kids has another story that reveals more about the characteristics of the Holy Spirit. In the story A Test in the Desert, your child will see the Holy Spirit lead Jesus to the desert. This will help your child understand that God’s Spirit can be his or her guide, too!
How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?
This story uses life-like animation to recreate the scene where Peter tells the people to turn away from evil and believe in Jesus Christ, in order to receive the Holy Spirit. This will reveal to your little one that people can be filled with the Spirit when they believe in Jesus as their saviour.
What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit?
This story will also show your child how people were baptised in the Spirit once they accepted Jesus as their saviour. This will help your kid understand that being filled with the Spirit means to become born again, with the Holy Spirit living inside us. In addition, your child can tap the screen to witness the baptism of a young girl. In fact, this is a good opportunity to teach your child about the significance of baptism.
Will I be able to see the Holy Spirit?
