Script Text

SIN - It means lying, stealing, jealousy, pride, anger, hatred, unbelief. It ends in suffering, death and hell! (Pause 4 sec.) What is that quarreling I hear? A brother and sister are fighting because she stole something belonging to him and has lied about it, too. He is angry, and says he will kill her! How awful is SIN. "Be not deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap." Sin made Jesus suffer. Because of sin He was crucified. (Pause 5 sec.)

What is this? They are crying, "Crucify Him!" Jesus Christ, the Son of God, our loving Saviour is made to suffer at the hands of cruel people who hate Him. He came to this world to save mankind. He loved everyone and wanted to help them. But Judas betrayed Him. Wicked men bound Him and condemned Him to death, even though He had done no wrong. They crushed a crown of thorns down on His head and pounded nails into His hands and feet. They made Him hang on a cross. He was God and could have prevented them from doing this, but He wanted to suffer so you and I might be saved. He knew that unless He took our punishment on Him, we could never be forgiven. He did it to keep us from going to hell. He did it to save us from the fires of eternal punishment. For us He gave His life. See Him there bleeding for us. Our sin caused His death. But anyone who calls upon the name of Jesus Christ for salvation may be saved. Today people still make fun and turn their backs on the Saviour. They are on the side of those who crucified Him; they continue on the broad road to hell.

Will you too turn your back on Jesus? Repent of your sins and thank Him for what He did for you. He rose again from the dead, and is alive, and will save all who come unto God by Him. Only He can forgive your sin. Only He can remove it from your heart and cancel (remove) your debt forever. Call upon Him now! (Jesus Christ said, "Him that comes to Me, I will in no wise cast out.")
