Todays Gospel is John 14: 1-14
Jesus is speaking the his Disciples, and he tells them if they believe in him they believe in God.
Jesus then says that if we follow the "will"(life) that he has made for you that he will come to you again and take you to his kingdom.
Do you think you are following the will that has been created for you?
Please discuss this question with your child. (It's a hard question, but it's a good one to ponder on)
After explaining this to the disciples Jesus tells them, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know the Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him." -John 14: 6-7
What Jesus is explaining that if we believe in Jesus then we believe in God the Father. We have to believe in Jesus before we can see God the Father.
"Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves." - John 14:11
"I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything. I will do it." -14: 13-14
