Children’s Message: The Key to Life
Jesus is the Way
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.
Optional Materials / Object Lesson Props: Keys, with locks to unlock I available.
Bible Passage: John 14:1-14
