Sermon Topic: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life
Note: We desire to partner with parents in helping their children grow spiritually, but we also recognize many of us feel ill-equipped to handle this responsibility. Here are some ideas for incorporating what you are learning each week into faith conversations at home. Choose what fits your family; make it a habit of sharing and praying together.
FUN FAMILY ACTIVITY:
Activity Level: Discuss bad habits during the family devotional or worship. Help your child(ren) to think about some bad habits they have. Each family member can take a turn to share. Pick one of the bad habits to change in 2020. Say this to your child(ren), “When we believe in Jesus, Jesus promises us new lives. We can ask God in prayers to help us stop the bad habits and start good ones. Some examples for children: read the Bible every day, make own-bed, go to bed early, be on-time, saving money, do house chores, write a diary, exercise, say kind words to others every day and so on.
Spiritual level: Jesus promises not only spiritual lives to sinful people but also bodily resurrections to all believers. Jesus’ resurrection two thousand years ago showed us the way to have eternal life. We have assurances that Jesus can give us new bodies when he returns.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Dear Heavenly Father, we’re thankful for the new lives on earth and the new bodies when Jesus returns. Help us to follow Jesus’ way closely, so we won’t get lost in the secular world. We thank you for your amazing grace to all people. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
