TOPIC: God is all-powerful, God’s strength
SCRIPTURE: Matt.6:27-34, 1 Cor.10:13, Heb.11:1-40
Style: allegory/conversation: spoof of
. an infomercial for a moving company
. paralleling God’s abilities
. and our faith in Him.
Cast: BIG MAN, ADMAN, PERSON 1-4 (you can have
. more or less people in the 3rd scenario)
Set & Props: huge box, tiny box, table
(ADMAN [can be male or female] comes out and addresses
ADMAN Have you ever faced a big moving dilemma?
. Well I have. But did I worry? No.
. Because I immediately contacted
. the Big Man Moving Company. Big Man -
. was prompt, professional and courteous.
. There isn’t anything that Big Man cannot move.
. My personal testimony is about having to move
. my most precious antique grand piano.
. Now, I don’t think I have to tell you -
. this is probably one of the trickiest things
. in the world to move. But Big Man did it –
. without nicking any of my walls, or
. without any damage to my priceless piano.
. So I can say without any shadow of a doubt,
. there isn’t anything too big, too heavy,
. or too numerous - for Big Man.
(ADMAN puts out an arm and BIG MAN steps out and poses.
PERSON 1 enters from the other side of the stage and
goes to stand beside the big box at center stage.)
P 1 Wait, what about my washing machine?
ADMAN Of course. If he can move my grand piano,
. Big Man can most certainly move something
. like a washing machine. All you have to do –
. is call Big Man.
P 1 Are you sure? It’s very heavy. 2
ADMAN You can trust what I say, because you can
. trust that Big Man can handle it.
. All you have to do – is call Big Man.
P 1 Okay. (calls) Hey, Big Man! I need your help.
(BIG MAN walks right over to the box, picks it up,
then carries it off stage.)
P 1 Wow, why did I ever doubt that Big Man
. could help me? There isn’t anything too big,
. too heavy, or too numerous - for Big Man.
. Thanks, Big Man.
(PERSON 2 enters, maybe accompanied by FRIENDS.
You can combine the lines or divide them up as you need.
ALL stand beside a table with a very tiny box on top.
ALL exaggerate their crying and worrying, and don’t be
afraid to speak over each other’s lines for these parts.)
P 2 I can’t believe this has happened to us?
P 3 What are we going to do?
P 4 This is too much, I say, it’s just too much!
P 2 I just don’t know what we can do about this.
P 3 It’s an impossible situation. Impossible!
P 4 Why me? WHY ME?!!!
P 2 (sobbing) Wha-ha-ha-ha...
P 3 I can’t take anymore.
P 4 There are no answers. There is just no hope!
ADMAN (approaches) Ah, excuse me, but there is hope.
P 4 Noooo, I look around and don’t see any hope.
. Any hope at all.
ADMAN But I know without a doubt - there is hope.
. Just - call - Big Man.
P 2 Ohhhhh, you think Big Man has all
. the moving answers, don’t you?!
P 3 There is no way he can handle this one.
ADMAN I know that he can. He just moved someone’s
. washing machine. And he moved my grand piano.
P 4 Well then, even if he COULD do all of that,
. why would he THEN both to help us with such
. a tiny problem? He’s got bigger things to do.
ADMAN Because... his specialty is moving things.
P 2 Well, I just can’t see it. It doesn’t make
. any sense at all. I’m so overwhelmed.
P 3 And the answer – it just sounds – well -
. it just sounds WAY too easy.
ADMAN What’s wrong with that?
P 4 What do you know? Your life is so easy.
ADMAN Because Big Man helped me. I had a huge item
. to move. I – don’t really want to compare –
. but my grand piano was – much bigger than this.
. All I had to do was call. All you have to do –
. is call.
P 2 (gasping for breath) Biiiig Maaaaaaaannn...
P 3 (weakly) Big Man? Big Man? Do you really exist?
P 4 I don’t know if you can hear us, but if you care,
. if you care at all, could you help us? Could you?
(BIG MAN walks over to the table and looks at the GROUP.)
P 2 (points to tiny box and speaks ominously)
. It’s... this.
P 3 I don’t know if you are able to help us or not.
P 4 It’s just so much to handle.
(BIG MAN looks a little sternly at the GROUP as he 4
picks up the tiny box and carries it out.)
P 2 (gasping) He – he did it.
P 3 I don’t believe it. I just don’t believe it.
P 4 I – I really thought we were completely doomed
. to a life of utter despair.
ADMAN (turns to congregation) So there you go.
. No matter where you are in life, and no matter
. where you have to go – call Big Man –
. he is able - to help anybody.
. There isn’t anything too big, too heavy,
. or too numerous... or TOO SMALL - for Big Man.
. Don’t worry. Call now.
