UNCLE BERYL’S SUNDAY SCHOOL –
BERYL (All children enter talking excitedly about Christmas until Beryl enters)
Good morning boys and girls! All of you seem to be excited about
Christmas, so let’s talk about that today! (Beryl looks at Sandy) By the
way, where is Rocky this morning?
SANDY Oh, he said he was coming! He might be a little late!
BERYL I sure hope he doesn’t miss out on our lesson for today! If Jesus was
never born, then we wouldn’t even have a reason to be here. (Rocky
enters) Well, good morning, Rocky! Today, we’re going to talk about
why Jesus was born.
ROCKY Oh, I’ve heard about Him being born in a stable where they sheltered
animals. What makes Him so important and special, being born like
BERYL I’m glad you asked that question. Piper, let’s see how well you can
answer his question.
PIPER In Isaiah 9:6, it says, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is
given, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The
Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
ROCKY Are you saying that God became a child?
PIPER Yes, in John 1:1 and 14, it says, “In the beginning was the Word, and
The Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was
made flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory as of the
only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
ROCKY Oh, I understand, but what’s in it for us today?
BERYL That’s a good question, Rocky! Sandy, why don’t you answer that one!
SANDY O.K., Uncle Beryl! Rocky, Jesus was born that He might die. In
I Thessalonians 5:9 and 10, it says, “ For God hath not appointed us
to wrath but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died
for us that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with
ROCKY You mean, He went through all that trouble for us?
SANDY Not for us, Rocky, but for people. You see, puppets, like us, don’t
have a soul and we can’t die because we’re not really alive like
people are, so we don’t need to be saved, but people do need to be
ROCKY So, why should puppets, like us, be so excited about Jesus today?
BERYL Crystal, can you answer his question?
CRYSTAL Yes, Uncle Beryl! Rocky, we can be used to teach boys, girls and
adults how they can be saved and have a wonderful life in Christ!
ROCKY You know, that does sound exciting, especially to watch how so
many boys and girls want to please God more and more each day!
BERYL You’re so right, Rocky, after all, Jesus said in John 10:10, “I am
come that they might have life and that they might have it more
abundantly.” So God promises that their lives will change once
they receive Christ as their Savior. And you know, this is only
possible because Jesus was born to die for people like those sitting
out in front of us. (Beryl turns to the audience) I’d like all of us and
you boys and girls to recite with me John 3:16. “For God so loved
the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life.” (All
say good byes and exit)
