Keeping up with life: Choices

Memory Verse all-age talk based on: Acts 3:19 with reference to Deut. 6:7

An all-age talk with a simple drama to illustrate how easy it is to follow the broad road that leads to destruction instead of the narrow road that leads to eternal life.

Ask for volunteers – you can just get some children and teens in your church/group to come to the front (I suggest prepare a few first) all they need to do is act out what you tell them. Have them stand in a line facing the audience, give an instruction in term and they all act out at the same time immediately on hearing the instruction.

illustrating life i more than going through the motions if we are to pass on values to our kids.

Scripture

“Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:7 NIV

Acts 3:19

The instructions go through a typical day – year – life

  • You wake up 
  • Get up 
  • Brush your teeth
  • Have breakfast 
  • Go to school
  • Come home from school 
  • Do your homework 
  • Watch TV
  • Go to bed 

it can also just be simplified by:

  • Sit
  • Walk
  • Sleep

Repeat a few times and get faster as you go, illustrating the pace of life gets faster and faster, introduce after 2 or 3 times, Go to Work instead of go to school, finish the presentation instead of homework.

Finish with

and then you die!

Talk to

The bible talks about how we live our life. We are all on a journey. We mess up but we can come to Christ. The memory verse (Acts 3:19) reminds us that every time we mess up we not only say sorry but Repentance is a choice to ask for God to help us to live different and walk in the opposite direction. and there’s a promise when we do that the bible says its like drinking a fresh cool water, times of refreshing will come from the Lord!

Challenge:

This week celebrate those in your life who have passed on to, you so you can pass on to others.
