Sin: A drama

SIN (1 John 1:5-2:2)

We presented a mime act for the purpose of teaching children the sinfulness of man. We need not go to witch doctors, bad friends, etcetera, to bring ourselves out of sin; only through Jesus Christ can we be free from sin.

God wants us to walk in the light, to live a life free of sin. But when we do sin we must confess our sins, for we have an advocate in Jesus Christ. We must not forget that we can go to God to receive His forgiveness.

God is light and calls believers to live in His light.

1 John 1:5-10 5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[b] sin.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us. (NIV)
