“Finding the Right Way”
Sermon Objective: To remind the children that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven.
Props: A map
Hi everyone! It is great to see you today. Whew! I was worried! I was worried that maybe you wouldn’t be here today … I was afraid that you might get lost or not know how to find the church!
Did any of you get lost on your way to church this morning? Did the people you were riding with make a wrong turn or anything? No. I know you didn’t get lost. Your families had no problem at all getting here. In fact if your mom and dad were to ask you, many of you could actually give them directions on how to get here because you know the way so well.
Well, not everyone knows the way they are supposed to go. In fact, some of you took vacations this summer and you had to use a map, similar to this one, to help you find your way. In some cases there was only one way to get to your destination and the map showed you EXACTLY which road to take. That’s what maps are for.
How many of you know that there in only one way to Heaven? Just like there are some places on earth that have only one way in so, Heaven has only one access point.
Do you know what that ONE WAY is?
Listen to this verse from the Bible. It will show you the ONE WAY. Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
The Bible tells us that the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ. Some people think being good can get them to Heaven but the Bible says that only Jesus can get us there.
Let’s thank God that Jesus can get us to heaven.
