MINISTRY-TO-CHILDREN: Main Objective: What does it mean that Jesus is “the way”? This message demonstrates to children the importance of Jesus being the most important thing in our lives. The object lesson utilizes a key to describe Christ’s power, emphasizing the key’s ability to let us into places, just as Jesus lets us into fellowship with God and eternal life. Law/Gospel Theme: Because of sin, we are separated from God. The law says that we must do certain things in order to receive blessing. Here, we see that Jesus is THE way to life. Because of His death and resurrection, the gates of Heaven are “unlocked” and we can gain access to the Lord. We cannot do it on our own, but Jesus makes the way for us, when we only believe.

Do Not Let Your Hearts be Troubled

“Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me” (14:1)

I know a little girl who is two years old and when she gets upset she scrunches up her face and says, I mad! We all feel like that at times. It is good to recognize our feelings and think about why we feel as we do. You may realize that you feel happy, sad, angry, or fearful.

It is okay to feel angry if someone hurts you or someone you love. It is okay to feel sad when you have lost something or someone who is dear to you. We understand that when we don’t know what’s going to happen next (what to expect) we may feel fearful.

There are times, however, that we become upset over things that don’t matter. At those times it is helpful to stop and think about something that Jesus said to his disciples,

One and the Same

“Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me….” (14:11)

Let me describe something and see if you can guess what it is. It is fluffy and white. It is something that you can eat. You may like to eat it with butter and salt added. It is fun to eat it while watching a video. Yes, it is popcorn. (Show the popped corn.)

Now look at this. (Show kernels of popcorn.) Describe what you see. You see popcorn? How can that be? This is not fluffy and white; it is yellow and very hard. Would it taste good with butter and salt added? No, you cannot eat it while it is in this form.

When heat is applied to the kernels of corn, steam forms inside the kernel causing it to change its appearance and pop or explode into a tasty treat that we can eat.

God’s Map

God’s most special “map” for us is the Bible. 

Have you ever been lost? I have – and it can be awfully scary.

Not long ago I was driving to another part of the state and made a wrong turn. Before I knew it, I had no idea where I was.

Luckily I keep some maps – like this one – in my car. Maps show us roads and streets – and can help us get from one place to another, especially when we don’t know the way.

Sometimes we can feel lost in life. Even when we know where we are, we can be confused by problems we face or choices we need to make. Not knowing the right thing to do can make us feel lost inside.

In our Gospel reading today, Jesus is telling his disciples that it is time for him to leave and go to heaven. He tells them he is going to prepare a special place for them there.

  • Sheets of construction paper or colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Pen


  1. Print or draw the maze of a house on a piece of paper.
  2. Cut strips of paper – one for “I am the Way,” one for “the Truth,” and one for “and the Life,” and color them in different colors.
  3. Give these strips to the children along with colored paper sheets and a glue stick.
  4. Let them choose a color to place on the maze puzzle and glue them on the corresponding door.
  5. Write John 14:6 at the end of the maze, as a visual reminder for children.
  6. Explain to the children that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that He opens the door to heaven through faith and belief.
