Victory! (skit)

Theme: Jesus gives us victory over Satan “…the Son of Man came to destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8) “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) “We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us,” (Romans 8:37)

Characters: Whimsey & Bonkley

Prop: A Bible

Presentation: Bonkley enters carrying the Bible. He addresses the group about the “full armor of God,” found in Ephesians 6:10-18. As he speaks, Whimsey sheepishly enters and peaks over Bonkley’s shoulder to see what he is reading. Bonkley continues speaking about the fight that Christians have with Satan and the “spiritual forces of evil.” Whimsey taps Bonkley on the shoulder startling him.

Bonkley regains his composure and inquires of Whimsey whether or not he has put on the full armor of God. Whimsey shrugs his shoulders, not knowing.

Bonkley states, “Well, you better have, because Satan wants to HIT you with temptation, SLAP you with all kinds of problems, and BEAT you down spiritually! (Of course, Bonkley is physically doing all of these things to Whimsey as he speaks!)

Whimsey picks himself up off the floor and states, “I don’t know if I believe in a real devil, though. Maybe he’s just imaginary!” Bonkley replies, “Oh, Whimsey, the devil’s just as real as I am, and he wants to HIT you with temptations, SLAP you with all kinds of problems, and…” and on through the whole series of slapstick again.

Whimsey once again recovers and then inquires, “How do we ever stand up under such attack, Bonkley?” Bonkley states, “Well, we should put on the full armor of God, just as I was reading a moment ago. But, first of all, we need to know that each one who believes in Jesus can live a life of victory over sin, temptation, and death, because of what Jesus accomplished through his death and resurrection. Jesus defeated the devil. He CLOBBERED him! And BEAT him! Jesus KNOCKED OUT all of Satan’s power! He SLAPPED Satan up one side and down the other!”

Whimsey finally begins running around stage to escape. Bonkley pursues yelling, “And now Satan has to FLEE even before the very name Jesus!” Chase off.

Performance Note: Please make sure that Bonkley does not come across as malicious. The slapstick should happen more as a course of demonstration, or accidentally; as if Bonkley is waving his arms innocently acting out the information he is sharing.
