We are not as we were meant to be. Because of sin, brokenness is the way the world operates. But the good news is, because of Jesus, our lives can be transformed in every way. Each of the people in this series was transformed and was able to discover more of God’s good plans.

In this series, we’ll discover how God’s Spirit gives us the power and courage to do what is right and pleasing to God. As we are changed by Him, we can share God’s good news with others. 

Series Invitation

Think back on your faith journey. When did you first meet Jesus? How did you change after you decided to follow Him? Scripture tells us that when we are in Christ, we become new creations, completely transformed (2 Corinthians 5:17). Paul is an excellent example of a life transformed by the Spirit! After his conversion, Paul was so different that people couldn’t believe he was the same man. As you lead kids in discovering the transformative power of the Holy Spirit in this series, remember He wants to change you for His plans and purposes, each and every day. 

As we are changed by Him, we can share God’s good news with others. 

Your transformation isn’t a one-time thing. As life goes on and your faith grows, the transformation continues as the Spirit changes your way of thinking, helps you, and grows you for His good plans. 

Read this series’ Word of Wonder: Romans 12:2. God’s plans are good; they are perfect. 

What plans does God have for you? You might not feel ready for God’s plans; you might not believe that you are the one He chose for this. Pause, be still, and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you. Allow God to change your thinking. Allow the Spirit to transform you, little by little, day by day. 

Maybe you’re in a storm and need strength from God, or you don’t feel like you can do whatever it is God has called you to do. 

Where do you need the Spirit’s transformative power in your life today?
