Jesus’ “I am” Statements

Open your Bibles to John chapter 10 and read verse 9.

Shepherds would lay at the only entrance and exit of where their sheep would stay to protect them from predators (wolves). Jesus says “I am the door” as He proves that He is the only way to heaven, and there is no other way.

Discuss the following questions together as a family:

1. Why does Jesus say He is “the door”?               

2. How do we open “the door” to get access into heaven, eternal life with God?                           

3. Share about a time that you knew God was protecting you in a dangerous situation.

Practical: Reread this passage of scripture two more times this week, whether alone or as a family, and thank Jesus for being our protector, shield and fortress.
