BIBLE FOCUS
John 1:1, 14

DISCOVERY POINT:
Jesus is God.

KEY VERSE:
"In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

THREE IN ONE
Read John 1:1 out loud a few times until you can say it by yourself.
 
What do you think this verse means?
Well, first of all, “the Word” means Jesus. Read the verse again, substituting “Jesus” for “the Word.” Then do this experiment to help you understand the meaning of the verse.
 
Have an adult help you to carefully fill a clean, empty plastic bottle about one-third full with hot water. Please an ice cube over the opening of the bottle.
 
What Happens?
Fog begins to develop. That’s three different forms of water—fog, ice, and water—but they’re all still water. It’s sort of the same with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. All three are God, but each is a distinct person.
 
Now read John 1:1 again, and then read John 1:14.
 
Below, write the verses in your own words:

FAMILY CHALLENGE:
As you eat a meal together this week, talk about what it means to you that Jesus is God. How does it make you feel? How can you worship Jesus as a family because he is God?
