Summary: These three skits are intended to follow closely one after the other, such as at a half-day youth function or on consecutive Sundays in a youth department, though they can be used for adult audiences also. Their purpose is to help Christians grow in their Christianity. They are fashioned after the old Bing Crosby/Bob Hope Road pictures.
Style: Light-hearted.  Duration: 4min each
Actors: 2M/F

Characters: (the cast can be either male or female, done by teens for teens or adults for adults, but are referred to here as Bing and Bob, as in Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in the old Road pictures. Bing is the slick fast-talker, always a step or two ahead of Bob, a gullible type. But they are best friends and Bing doesn’t ever mean any harm to Bob by his schemes, though Bob is always the fall guy.)
BING
BOB

Script 1

BOB: (walking into room where BING is sitting at a desk with 4 or 5 folders in a stack) I want out!
BING: What?
BOB: I want out of this life. It’s too hard!
BING: Well, if that’s what you want…(looks through stack of folders and picks one)…here’s your file. (gets out three papers stapled together- looks at first page) Says here you accepted Christ as your Savior five years ago. Good. (looks at next page) Here’s all the sins you’ve committed. (shows it to BOB but audience can also see- page is filled with small printing with large word FORGIVEN written across it in red marker) As you can see they are all forgiven. Everything looks ok. Looks like you are cleared to go to your next life. (idly turns to the last page)
BOB: Great! I’m outta here! (starts heading for the exit)
BING: Oops, we have a problem.
BOB: (stopping and turning back) What? (as in “What is the problem?”)
BING: Not “what”…”who”.
BOB: Huh?
BING: Mr. Rosser.
BOB: Mr. Rosser, my grouchy neighbor?
BING: Yep. Says here you’re the main one God is using in Rosser’s life to show love to and to pray for.
BOB: It does?
BING: (putting down the papers and adding his own “enhancements”) Why, in Rosser’s life your name is up there in lights on a big marquee…(looks up and gestures as though seeing a marquee)…linked with all the stars.
BOB: Really? (looks up too)
[use names on marquee that will connect with your audience]
BING:  Bill Gates!
BOB: (echoing) Bill Gates!
BING: Brad Pitt!
BOB: Brad Pitt!
BING: Lady Ga-Ga!
BOB: Lady Ga-! Wait, I know what you’re doing! It’s not going to work!
BING: You’re right. I’m sorry. Let me try again. Actually, your name is linked in Rosser’s life with only one other person, and it isn’t in lights. And Mr. Rosser doesn’t even know this other person…(slight pause)…yet.
BOB: Well, who is it?
BING: Jesus, the (slight pause) Light (slightly emphasize “Light”) of the World, and the Bright and Morning (slight pause) Star (slightly emphasize “Star”).
BOB: (after slight pause of looking at BING) I’m staying!
BING: (slapping BOB on back as they both exit together) That’s my boy! [ or, “That’s my girl!”]

Script 2


(This skit is meant to be a continuation of the skit “Road to God  (Part 1)”, which lays the foundation for the format and characters used in this skit. Please refer to that skit first.)
Cast: (can be male or female, done by teens for teens or adults for adults)
BING
BOB

BOB: (walking into room where BING is sitting at a desk with 4 or 5 folders in a stack) I want out!
BING: Again?
BOB: Jane said I was ugly and smelled bad.
BING: Do you?
BOB: Do I what?
BING: Do you smell bad?
BOB: I take a shower every morning!
BING: See! She was only half right. 1 out of 2 ain’t bad.
BOB: But she shouldn’t be saying things like that. Who does she think she is?
BING: (looks through stack of folders, picks one out) Here’s her file. (takes out a paper and begins silently reading it - after a moment hands it to BOB) Here, you read it. This is who she thinks she is.
[use following topics appropriate to audience]
BOB: (reading from paper) Having trouble keeping off the extra weight…parents thinking of divorce…struggling with Algebra… low self esteem. (looking up and dropping paper on desk) But this isn’t who she is! She is someone Jesus died for. She is a child of the King, a part of the Bride, an overcomer of the world!
BING: I know that and you know that, but she doesn’t. That’s why she said those things to you.
BOB: Maybe I could help her see herself as she really is?
BING: Maybe.
BOB: (after slight pause looking at BING) I’m staying!
BING: (slapping BOB on back as they exit together) That’s my boy! [or, “That’s my girl!”]

 

Script 3

(This skit is intended to follow the skit “Road to God (Part 2)”. Please see that skit first.)
Cast: (the cast can be male or female and can be performed by teens for teens or by adults for adults)
BING
BOB

Script

BOB: (walking into room where BING is) I want out!
BING: Again? I meant to tell you, God told me he wants you to stay here. So you’re stuck.
BOB: What? Why did he tell you and not me?
BING: He said you weren’t available.
BOB: I know. I get kind of nervous at the thought of going to God. I mean, why would he want to see me?
BING: Hmmm…let me think. (pretends to think for a second) Oh, I don’t know, maybe because he created you, loves you, and sent his son to die for you? Tell you what, why don’t we go see him now.
BOB: What? Now? But I don’t have my suit on. I forgot to brush my teeth this morning…look (holds up arm) I’m getting duckbumps.
BING: Don’t you mean goosebumps?
BOB: No, I’m scared of geese. One bit me once.
BING: Quit stalling. Let’s go.
BOB: Ok. Which way?
BING: There. (pointing down)
BOB: Huh? Don’t you mean there? (pointing up)
BING: Just follow me. (gets on knees, lowers head, closes eyes, begins praying silently)
BOB: What if he tells me to leave because I have bad breath?
BING: He won’t.
BOB: Here I come. (gets on knees, begins to pray)
BING: Good boy! [or, “Good girl!”]
