John 14:1-7

Can you think of a time when you were all alone and scared? GET EXAMPLES. Who did you want? What did you do? YOU WANTED MOM OR DAD.

Today we remember a special day in the life of the church. Today we remember Ascension Day. Do any of you boys and girls know what Ascension Day is? This is the day Jesus went up into heaven.

Jesus was being lifted up into heaven. Earlier, He was lifted up onto the cross (SHOW PICTURE). Then, He was lifted up from the grave (SHOW PICTURE). And now He is being lifted up into heaven.

The disciples were upset that Jesus was leaving them. They were upset and scared because they were going to be all alone.

Jesus told the disciples not to be troubled and upset and scared because He was going to be busy doing something for them. So, what is He doing? He is making a place for us in heaven (SHOW PICTURE).
