Upper Elementary Sunday Mar 18: Jesus is the Bridge (Fear of the Lord)

Key Verse: 

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 NIV

Key Themes: 

  • Behaving like a Christian does not make a person a Christian
  • No one can persevere in the Way of the Wise by his own effort; his heart must be changed to love what is good and right.
  • Jesus is the only way to the Father; Jesus is the bridge from the Way of the Fool to the Way of the Wise

Additional Texts: 

Genesis 18:20-19:26
1 John 2:15
Isaiah 35:8-10 

Discussion Questions: 

1. We read about Lot’s wife. Why do you think Lot’s wife turned back? What was in her heart?

2. Can we walk in the Way of the Wise by our own strength?

3. Where do you think your heart is? Is it on the Way of the Fool or on the Way of the Wise?

Application Points: 

1. Make sure your child understands the message of the gospel. You may want to use one of the following explanations:
