WHY?

WEEK 3: Why Is There Only One Way to Heaven?

Bible: John 14:6 NLT

Bottom Line: Jesus provides the only way to spend eternity with God in heaven.

SUPPLIES

• 2 Copies of the directions
• Scissors

OPENING GAME: ONE WAY, OKAY?

GAME PREP

Divide students into two teams of equal size.

Have each team form a circle and sit down.

Take each copy of the directions and cut into strips – one direction on each slip of paper.

Give each team the eleven strips of paper from each copy of the directions.

If there are more than eleven students in each group, have them form pairs until everyone is able to participate.

If there are less than eleven students in each group, give some students more than one direction – this just means they will have to really pay attention.

DIRECTIONS

Jump up and down in place.

After someone jumps in place, stand up and clap three times.

After someone claps three times, stand up and spin around twice.

After someone spins around twice, stand up and run in place.

After someone runs in place, stand up and shout the name of your youth group.

After someone shouts the name of the youth group, stand up and do two jumping jacks.
After someone does two jumping jacks, stand up and whistle.

After someone whistles, stand up and whip your hair back and forth.

After someone whips their hair back and forth, stand up and do two squats.

After someone does two squats, stand up and take a bow.

After someone takes a bow, stand up and say “WE’RE FINISHED!”

HOW TO PLAY THE GAME

Say: Today, we’re going to play a game that can only be played one way – otherwise, you aren’t playing it right.

Each of you have been given a direction to follow in your group.

So far it sounds easy, but there’s a catch…

The catch is that you can ONLY follow your direction after another person completes theirs.

So,you really have to pay attention!

I will tell you that the first person to go on your team is the person with the piece of paper that says, “Jump up and down in place.”

After you go, the rest of your team will have to figure out the correct order.

When you think you have figured it out, you will have to “perform” all of the directions for a leader who will declare the winner.

The winner is the first team who can complete the directions correctly.

You will do great!

TEACH

Say: Welcome to Week 3 of our series called, “Why?”

I want to share a story with you about a flight to Paris.

Imagine you wanted to take a flight to Paris, France and you have never flown before.

When you enter the airport terminal, you are told that you are required to wear a hat.

Sounds weird, I know, but stay with me.
Now, you were not told what type of hat to wear, so you just pick one that you like at the hat store, right next to your gate.

It fits you nicely and it happened to be in green, your favorite color.

You arrive with many other passengers all at different gates and airlines but each one says “Paris.”

Then, one of the people at the flight gate tells you that you can’t get on the plane with that hat.

They won’t let you on.

The person tells you that you must have a red hat.

You don’t particularly like red hats, but you trade your green hat for a red one and head off to board the plane.

As you are walking you hear a man loudly mumbling, “I don’t think that Paris even exists. Why would I want to go there?”
Once again, you’re faced by another person at the station who tells you that your hat is much too big for the plane.

Of course, no one told you it had to be under a certain size.

So, you make your way back to the hat store to trade your “too big” red hat for a smaller, more appropriately sized red hat.

You finally make it to board your plane for Paris, France.

You sit down and within a few minutes, you’re in the air.

After several hours, you arrive in Paris, France.

Of course, with all the other passengers on different flights for Paris, you expect to see them in the airport, but unfortunately, you are the only one there.

You look up at the flight times to see if perhaps they were delayed.

To your surprise, there are no other flights scheduled to arrive in Paris.

Out of concern for your fellow passengers, you call the airport in your city to find information on the flights.

The polite attendant responded that all of the Paris flights left on time and have arrived at their destination.
After further investigation, you find that the flights were actually destined for other cities named Paris.

And one of the planes just made a great big circle and landed back where it started.

You see, for hundreds and even thousands of years, people have thought they knew the way to heaven, and that there were many paths to get there.

Some believed they had to wear the right clothes and follow the right religion and do good things for mankind.

Earlier in our story, everyone thought they were going to Paris, but their ideas of Paris were very different.

Some even went nowhere, and others even said they didn't even believe Paris existed.

But in the end, only one of the flights went to the real Paris France, no matter what the other passengers thought.

Heaven is the same way.

There are lots of people who say they know the way to heaven, or enlightenment, or whatever they call their idea of heaven.

But the BIG question today is “Why is there only one way to heaven?” followed by the second question, “Don’t you have to know about all religions to find the one that’s true?”

Read Romans 1:19-20.

“They know the truth about God because He has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky.

Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature.

So they have no excuse for not knowing God.”

The Apostle Paul says that everyone can see God’s qualities clearly through creation.

And people have no excuse for not knowing God.

When we see a painting, we assume that someone painted it, right?

And when we see a massive bridge or building, we know that someone designed it and created it.

Now, later in the chapter, you can read about how people found other things to worship and how they turned away from God.

If the Holy Spirit has personally transformed your life, you will know that He is the only one who can do that and that Jesus is the only way to heaven.

Experience is the best teacher.

Your salvation transformation can speak into the lives of others.

Since we are talking about heaven, according to the Bible, what is heaven even like?

Jesus referred many times in the Book of Matthew to the “Kingdom of Heaven.”

During those occasions, He was teaching people about what it would be like in heaven.

Jesus would use phrases like, “…The Kingdom of Heaven is like…”

The Book of Revelation talks about heaven being a gigantic building with lots and lots of little rooms all throughout.

Some old songs even say that heaven is filled with mansions.

Many times, over the years, the disciples heard Jesus talk about heaven, but here He explains what it takes to get there someday.

In John chapter 13, Jesus had just participated with His disciples in the Passover feast and had also washed His disciple’s feet.

He told about who was going to betray Him and that Peter was going to deny Him three times.

Then, he drops a huge bombshell that the disciples were not expecting.

He told them that He was going to be crucified.

They were not very happy about it.

Jesus goes on to tell them not to be upset or worried because He was going to prepare a place.

He was talking about heaven.

Jesus tells them that they know the way He is going, talking about the way to heaven.

The disciple Thomas is confused.
Thomas says he doesn’t know what Jesus is talking about.

Then, Jesus says this:

Read John 14:6.

“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”

That sounds pretty exclusive.

If Jesus is the only way to get to heaven, then that means everyone else is wrong, right?

These men had grown up studying Jewish teachings.

They had learned them as children, and even heard stories about the Messiah and how He would come and save God’s people, Israel.

They knew they were supposed to follow the Law of Moses and offer sacrifices and go to the Temple and synagogue to worship God there.

Until they met Jesus, these men knew that was what good Jewish men were supposed to do to honor God and obey the teachings of the priests.

But for the past three years they had followed Jesus and listened as He not only captured the hearts of other Jews, but challenged the religious leaders of their day.

Jesus lets them know that He is about to be executed.

The disciples were devastated.

At that point, they didn’t understand how all of it was going to play out - How can anyone come to the Father through Jesus if He is dead?

We know from reading the rest of the story that they will understand later, but in the moment the disciples were stunned at the news.

Jesus told them that He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Finding God’s truth by studying many other religions is like drinking from several different cups just to find the one that is not filled with poison.

There is only one way to heaven because there is only one absolute truth.

I can stand on top of a 50-story building shouting “I don’t believe in gravity!”
I can even convince other people to believe and shout with me.

I could even make signs protesting that gravity isn't the only way to stay on the ground.

But when I jump off, still shouting that statement, the truth is I will fall to the ground - and what I believe becomes irrelevant.

Gravity still exists.

And Jesus is still the only way to spend eternity with God in heaven.

Close in prayer.

SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

1. What comes to mind when you hear the word “heaven?”

2. Why would someone want to go to heaven?

3. Why doesn’t everyone make it to heaven?

4. Can someone do enough good things and make it into heaven? Why or why not?

5. Why can’t there be more than one way to heaven?

6. Why do you think people want to have more than one way to heaven?

7. Is it wrong to exclude other people from heaven, just because they don’t follow Jesus?

8. In your group, have each person share how they would imagine heaven to be like.

9. What are some ways that you have seen God in creation?

10. Have one or two students share their salvation experience.
