The kids in our Jr. Youth group like to prepare a sketch and a song that go together and present them in a morning service. We've done several parables already.
We're now working on a story from Matthew 21:18. Jesus talks about a father who tells his son to go work in the field. Son one gives a beautiful answer, but never goes to work. Son two doesn't say the right thing (he says no), but then he goes and does the work.
Son one is the person who sings, gives offering, and prays without ever obeying God. Son two is the person who does what God tells him to do.
The Jr. Youth members and I wrote a sketch about a president with two groups of 'cabinet members'. The first group applauds the president and does nothing. The second group speaks against his ideas, but ends up doing what they were asked to do.
Then we sing a song I wrote...a reggae beat with a few simple lines about obedience. That's followed by a rap segment that is in my mind (and hopefully in the kids' minds...and then in the minds of the congregation) all the time. It says: WORSHIP NEVER WALKS ALONE IN OUR LIVES. WORSHIP ALWAYS WALKS TOGETHER WITH OBEDIENCE. IF ULTIMATELY YOU WANT TO WORSHIP GOD, WELL THEN OBEY, OBEY, OBEY HIM!
If YOU want to worship God, well, then obey Him.
