Jesus is God’s Child

Read: John 14:6-7

Our Church School Class of Fifth Graders recently studied how God reveals Himself in Jesus. The previous Sunday, Lila Boehms had suggested that the children bring a baby picture of themselves and everyone brought one, including the teachers.

The class enjoyed guessing which picture belonged to whom. They noticed how a child often resembled a parent or a brother or sister. We discussed how children also can resemble a parent by facial expressions, gestures and in the way they express themselves. One can tell a lot about a parent from observing their child.

Likewise, we can tell a lot about God by studying about Jesus. Jesus is God’s child – Jesus “takes after” God.

Jesus said:

“I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you                     would know my father as well.”


Our Heavenly Father, may your plan for our lives be revealed to us through the early life of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
