Jesus: Humble Faith Unleashes

the Spirit in You

Say your name in the blank spaces. 

Because you, _____, believe in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water are flowing from within you right now.  By rivers of living water, I mean the Holy Spirit, whom those who believe in me receive.  [Jn 7:37-39,  Jn 20]

At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.  [Lk 10:21]

Jesus called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, _____, unless you change and become like a little child, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, _____, have the same trusting humility of this child and you will become truly great in the kingdom of heaven, even as you build up the Father’s kingdom of Love on earth as it is in heaven.”  [IB Mt 18:2-4]

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them--and to you too, _____,--“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  [Mk 10:13]

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. You, _____, have believed this and believe in the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.  [Jn 1:14]   You believe Christ Jesus to be  God incarnate. Therefore, Christ has  made you a child of God—a child born not of natural descent, nor of human decision, but born of God--born of the Holy Spirit.  [Jn 1:12-13]

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. By faith you understand that what is seen was made from what is not seen and not visible. By faith your know that the entire universe and all that is in it was created by the word of God, invisible to the mortal eye Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval--and you, _____, will also receive approval by your faith in Christ Jesus as your Lord, Savior and God, equal to the Father..  [He 11:1-3]

      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word

     was with God, and the Word was God. He was

     with God in the beginning. Everything was

     created through him; nothing—not one thing!—

     came into being without him.  And all that

     came into existence was Life, and the Life was

     Light to live by. The Life-Light blazed out of the

     darkness; the darkness couldn't put it out. The

     Life-Light was the real thing: Every person

     entering Life he brings into Light.  [Jn 1:1-5,13]
