Easter Countdown Family Activity: Jesus is the only way to God the Father

5 Days before Easter

Passage: John 14:1-7

Verse: John 14:6

Theme: Jesus is the only way to God the Father


One day Jesus was talking to his disciples. He told them not to worry when he’s gone because he is going to prepare a place for them in Heaven so they can be with him.

Thomas said, “Lord, we don’t know how to get there!”

Jesus replied, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Jesus was saying that he himself is the way! If we follow him and trust him to be our Savior, he will bring us to God the Father at the right time.

Have you ever done a maze before? They are a lot of fun but can be tricky! You have to take the right path and avoid the dead-ends if you want to get to the finish. Life can be a little bit like that. There are lots of dead-ends that can distract us from where we’re supposed to go. But if we follow Jesus, he will show us the right way to go!

Today we’re going to have some fun with a maze to remember that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
