THE A-MAZE-ING RACE
Set up: Print a copy of the “Amazing Mazes” for each person.
Today we learned that Jesus is the way, truth, and life. In the Bible, Jesus said that, “No one can come to the Father except through me.” Let’s play a game that will help us understand what that means.
Directions: Give everyone in your group a copy of the “A-maze-ing Mazes” along with a pen or pencil. Each copy includes 3 mazes. When you say “go,” have everyone begin working on the first maze. After 8 seconds, yell “switch” and quickly pass your maze to the person on your right (counterclockwise). Everyone will have to pick up where the previous person left off. Continue yelling “switch” every 8 seconds until someone has completed the maze. Upon completion, the victor will have to jump up and do an “a-maze-ing” dance. Repeat this activity for the remaining 2 mazes. When finished, ask the following questions:
Question: How many ways were there to reach the end? (Answer: Only one. Every other way led to a dead end.)
Question: Jesus said, “No one can come to the Father except through me.” How were these mazes kind of like that verse? (Answer: There is only one way to reach heaven and that’s through Jesus.)
