TOPIC: Holy Spirit’s empowerment
SCRIPTURE: Rom.15:13-19, Eph.5:18
Style: drama/conversation: a parent explains
. to a child how a rechargeable battery
. operates, which can be likened to
. the Holy Spirit's power in us
Cast: PARENT, CHILD
Set & Props: remote-control car
(PARENT and CHILD play with a remote-control car.
It suddenly stops.)
CHILD It stopped! We need to put in a new battery.
PARENT Actually, this car has a rechargeable battery,
. so we just have to recharge it.
CHILD But it needs a battery.
PARENT It already has a battery. The battery
. is always there.
CHILD So we don’t have to put in a new one?
CHILD But what’s wrong with the battery then?
PARENT Nothing. The battery is still good. We just
. used it up - we let it run out of power.
CHILD So NOW what do we do?
PARENT We are going to have to plug it in for a while.
CHILD Then what?
PARENT Then we will be able to play with the car again.
CHILD Will it happen again?
PARENT Oh yes. We need to keep plugging it in
. so that it can recharge.
CHILD But when it’s plugged in, we cannot play 2
. with the car.
PARENT No, but it is worth the wait, isn’t it?
CHILD Yes it is.
PARENT And just like this remote-controlled car,
. that’s how it is for Christians.
. The Holy Spirit is kind of like
. this rechargeable battery.
. He’s always in us.
. We just have to remember to recharge.
CHILD How do we recharge the Holy Spirit?
PARENT Well, the Holy Spirit doesn’t need
. to be recharged.
. But the Holy Spirit’s power in US
. needs to be recharged.
. In other words – WE need to be recharged!
. And that can happen by doing things
. like reading and studying the Bible,
. praying and going to church.
. It's kind of like –
. plugging in to God.
CHILD Interesting. So I guess
. we could go plug everything in right now?
(PARENT and CHILD carry the remote-control car out.)
