Dad and Jesus Fuel Rockets Devotion

Teacher, How do we bridge Scripture and the realm of science in youth ministry?
We may choose a creative example inspired by Scripture through the working of the Holy Spirit in the Rockets Devotion for Youth.
With a timely tribute to Father’s Day, Dad can engage this one and be a model teaching example to youth.

Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Discuss how the rocket is only seen by a few people when it is on the ground, but when it has the power and launches, it is seen by many people all around.
When we have the power of the Holy Spirit inspiring us, we are able to be a greater witness to all nations (people).

Isaiah 40:28-31
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.

Talk about when we pray for God’s help, He gives us all the strength that we need on the inside to do what He asks us to.
We are also able to go farther, higher and accomplish goals once we have recieved His strength.

Zechariah. 4:4-6
4 And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my Lord?” 5 Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my Lord.” 6 Then He said to me, “This is the Word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts.

We are like rockets when it comes to serving The Lord. We need high power fuel.
The Holy Spirit brings us strength and inspiration.
The Lord tells us to rely on His spirit.
We have The Lord’s spirit in us.
We choose to do something pleasing to The Lord.
We rely on The Lord’s power.
Stand back while we do something powerful for The Lord.
What do we do?
What can we do to serve The Lord this week?
Remind the youth to show everyone their high power fuel rockets and what they do to serve The Lord.

Closing Prayer.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
Dear Jesus,
For our youth all over the Lord’s bountiful creation,
as precious believers in You,
Please give our youth the patience to wait on You,
Please send them the Holy Spirit,
so You may lead them in the path of righteousness and
they may soar like rockets to engage your call.
For all who lead youth in ministry,
May The Lord bless you and guard you,
May The Lord show you His favor and be gracious to you,
May The Lord show you His kindness and grant You His peace.
