Reader's Theater: All Things Right (Reconciliation)
Adapted from 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
1: So we have stopped judging others from a human point of view.
3: Oh we have, have we?
1: At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!
2: Christ, who’s that?
4: Jesus, the God who loves you.
1: (nods) This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
4: The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
3: We could use some new life around here.
2: I’d sure would like a new life! But that would be too hard for someone like me.
1: And all of this is a gift from God,
4: See, it’s a gift! You can have it right now! It’s free for everyone!
3: Free? Everyone? I never win anything.
1: (nods) And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ.
2: Christ – That’s the one who loves me? (starting to get excited) All this is a gift from Him?
4: That’s right. And God has given us this task of forgiving people and drawing them to Him.
2: You mean, I have to be nice to him? (looks over at number 2)
1: Well, God was in Christ, forgiving the world, and stopped counting people’s sins against them.
4: And he gave us this wonderful message of forgiveness.
2: So we are Christ’s ambassadors;
1: God is making his appeal through us.
4: So; We speak for Christ when we plead,
1,2,4: (turn to number 2) “Come back to God!”
3: Are you sure He’d want me?
2 & 4: (step close to 3 and put arms around)
1: For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
