TOPIC: sins revealed, God knows, conscience
SCRIPTURE: Numbers 32:23; Proverbs 28:13, Matt.11:21;
. 1 John3:20
Style: allegory/conversation: every time a man
. walks toward sin, his shoes make
. a big noise.
Cast: PERSON 1, PERSON 2 (alone or with group)
. (if WOMEN, change the names and topic)
Set & Props: squeak toy (something to make a noise)
NOTE: There are several options with this skit:
. 1. The temptation topic can be different.
. Depending on audience and message,
. this would be simple to improvise.
. Some other topic ideas:
. - skipping school/work
. - doing something other than what
. is promised or expected
. - shopping when you don’t have
. the money (etc.)
. 2. See end for optional endings.
(PERSON 1 walks right. PERSON 2/alone or with group
P2 Hey, Bobby! We’re heading over to Sam’s
. to watch some dirty movies. Wanna join us?
P1 Ahhh. I – don’t think so.
P2 What’s wrong? Your wife (or “mommy”)
. won’t let you?
P2 Come on, you’re not going to let them
. tell you what you can or cannot do.
. Who’s gonna know?
P1 Well, I will. And – God will know.
P2 Seriously? What’s God going to do?
. Zap you with a lightning bolt?
. Seriously. Whatever.
. So? Maybe we’ll see you there then?
P1 Yeah, maybe.
(PERSON 2 [and group] continue to walk left and exit.)
(NOTE: At this point,
. whenever PERSON 1 takes a step to the left,
. with every step, there is a fairly loud noise.)
(PERSON 1 stands and thinks. Takes a step right. Stops.
He turns and walks left. Hearing the noise, he stops.
He slowly takes another step left. Noise.
He wonders at the noise. Takes a few more steps. Noise.
He then walks right. No noise.
He tries walking left again, balking at the noise.
He stops to think. He tries to take a few steps
to the left while walking sideways. Still noise.
He walks to the right. The noise stops. He stops then-
He tries to walk backwards to the left. Still noise.
(ENDING OPTION 1:
PERSON 1 nods with understanding
and walks to the right and exits.)
NAR. “Be sure your sin will find you out.”
. Proverbs 28:13 says, “He who keeps his sins secret
. will not do well; but one who is open about them,
. and gives them up, will get mercy.”
(ENDING OPTION 2:
PERSON 1 covers his eyes, and then while peeking through
his fingers and quickly walks left and exits,
ignoring the noise)
- This could be effective at the beginning of sermon,
. depending on how it will be approached or delivered.
- This could be very effective at the end of a sermon,
. leading into an altar call,
. i.e. “How many of you are walking in
. the wrong direction and ignoring the noise
. that is in your heart?...”
