Lesson This Week: Jesus is The Way, The Truth & The Life                             

14 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”  5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also.[d] From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves.
12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me[e] anything in my name, I will do it.

Verses & Prayers
 
In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world.
John 16:33
 
Dear Jesus,
Always stay close to me when things hurt, when I am scared, when I don’t know what to do-be with me Jesus.  Teach me to calm and to breath in your love.  Thank you for always being by my side.  AMEN
 
 
No power in the sky above or in the earth below-indeed, nothing in all creation will… separate us from the love of God.  Romans 8:39
 
Heavenly Lord, You were there in the beginning, creating and watching over all living things.  You are with us now and nothing can stop Your endless love for your children.  AMEN
 
(The Lord) will cover you with his feathers.  he will shelter you with his wings.  His faithful promises are your armor and protection.  Psalm 91:4
 
Dear God, help us to trust you and not be afraid.  Just as a mother bird covers her babies with her wings to protect them, God will cover you with promises of love.  Look for rainbows in the sky, remembering the loving care of Noah and his family.  AMEN
 
 
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”  Mark 10:27
 
Loving Jesus, help us to believe in you, trust you, and look for what you want us to do in life.  Even when things seem impossible, show me the way.  Remind us that nothing is too hard when we rely on You Jesus and the lessons you taught us.  AMEN
