C 2 (to C 3) I can’t believe we got stuck babysitting.
C 3 I’ve never had to babysit before. What do we do?
C 1 You can tell me a story.
C 2 Which story should we tell you?
C 1 Tell me – the best story in the Bible.
C 3 (looks through story book) Ahhh, which one
. is that?
C 2 Oh, here, how about the story of Kind David?
. David loved, obeyed and followed God.
. Because of that, God provided David with strength
. and success in battle. God also provided
. protection from Saul, and provided David with
. a best friend, Jonathan, who looked out for him.
C 1 No, that’s not the one.
C 3 Well, what about the story of the prophet Elijah
. who followed and trusted in God.
. During a great drought, God provided food and
. health to him and the widow and her son.
. God also provided fire and rain afterwards.
C 1 Ahhh, no, that’s not the one. 2
C 2 Oh, what about the story about Naaman the leper,
. who had once been a great warrior and captain
. of an army. When he went to find healing,
. he was at first very angry at God.
. But when Naaman humbled himself,
. and had faith to trust in God’s directions
. to wash himself clean, God provided healing.
C 1 Ummmm, no, that’s not the one.
C 3 Okay, what about the prophet Nehemiah,
. who confessed and cried out to God.
. God then helped Israel get their land back
. and rebuild their city. God also helped
. provide them with building materials
. and protection from their enemies.
C 1 No, that’s not the one.
C 2 Ahhhh, okay, how about the story of Queen Esther,
. who fasted and prayed to God. Then God gave her
. wisdom and courage to approach the king,
. which saved the people of Israel.
C 1 Nope, that’s not the one.
C 3 The story of Daniel is really awesome.
. Daniel confessed the sins of the nation of Israel,
. and obeyed and followed God. God provided him
. with health, wisdom and insight, as well, He
. protected Daniel from the lions in the lion den.
C 1 Mmmmm, no, that’s not the one.
C 2 Okay, so what about Jonah, who after disobeying
. God, was swallowed by a fish and was in the belly
. of the fish for 3 days until he confessed
. and prayed thankfully, then obeyed God.
. God then helped him talk to the people of Nineveh,
. so that the people were saved
. when they confessed their sins
. and obeyed and followed God.
C 1 Noooo, that’s not the one either.
C 3 So give us a hint. 3
C 1 John the Baptist told everyone about it.
C 2 John the Baptist was a messenger of God.
C 3 Yeah, John the Baptist went around warning people
. of judgment and death unless they would repent
. and confess their sins.
C 2 And John the Baptist told the people about Jesus.
C 1 That’s the one.
C 3 The good news story is about Jesus Christ.
. Because God loved us so much, God sent His
. only Son, Jesus, to die for all our sins,
. so that we could repent – and be saved.
C 2 Huh! Notice that in all the stories we suggested –
. ALL those people, when they prayed to God,
. asked for forgiveness, and decided to obey God,
. and God then saved and helped them.
. God provides all of us with Jesus Christ’s
. sacrifice and resurrection, so we could repent
. and be saved, and go to heaven, to be
. with Him forever.
C 3 Cool.
C 1 See, that is the best story in the Bible.
C 2 It is... It’s the best story anywhere.
