Suggestion for the Lifehouse Everything Skit

December 17th, 2007 · 7 Comments · Christ, Christianity, Death, Religion, Videos

I have posted the video for this skit some time back. The more I think about it and show it to others I think there is one thing missing. All the forces of darkness tug at her and hold her back from getting to Jesus and enjoying the relationship she once had with him. The reality of it is that falling into sin results in spiritual death (Eph 2). The good part of the good news is that Jesus has conquered death – not just keeping them from attacking us any more but he actually came to us when we were dead, a corpse, killed by those same forces and he raised us to walk in newness of life.

So here is my suggestion. In the skit, let the forces do what the forces do in real life and act out them killing the girl. Jesus then fights with them and struggles against them, just as he does in the present video and overpowers them. Then he goes to the dead girl and does just what he did in the beginning. In the beginning of the video he brings her to life through the dust of the ground and the breath of his spirit. Wouldn’t it be appropriate for her to walk to her lifeless body and do that again and raise her to her feet again to walk in harmony with Jesus – recreated? (2 Cor 5:17). Just my two cents but I would love to hear that someone ran with that idea because I think it more fully demonstrates what Christ has done for us and the dire state we were in before being saved by Christ. He didn’t save us from an attack. He raised us from death.

    I love this video! It so represents what Jesus does for us if we allow Him to. I do like your suggestions, Matt!

    I liked your seggestion up there. Im trying to organize this skit for my youth group to do in front of our church and a youth rally we are having later on at our highschool. I hope to touch people as the video touched me. I think if we do it we could move so many people. I have really enjoyed it and I have tears roll down my face. Im going to use your suggestion and I’d like any more ideas you have about getting this to work. Thank you -Alicia

    we will be doing this skit in 2 weeks, for our church… I love the ideas!!! Right now we are working on the dancing bus that we have, but I will certainly have my students do this… That is even my favorite verse, in the whole Bible! To think God can clean you up no matter how dirt you tried to make yourself!!! We serve an awesome God!!

    I like that idea a lot. We are dead in our sins. And He raised us up to life. I’m going to toy around with that idea for a while. If anyone has any tips on how best to implement it into the actual drama please post.

    Hi, I realize this is two and a half years after the actual post, but I wanted to tell you that my group is using this idea. It’s fantastic.

    Your youth group did a great job with the drama! My youth group is working on it and we are having a difficult time with the black shirt ….. either it’s too difficult to tear off or some off to easy. Can you tell me how you did the girls shirt in the skit?
