[Amy is hanging on a tree branch very high up.]

AMY

HELP! (pause) Is there anyone who can help me?!

JEFF

Sure, weíll help you. Just let go and weíll catch you in our net.

AMY

[crying out] Is there anyone ELSE who can help me!

JEFF

Okay! Okay! Have it your way. Donít say we didnít offer to help.

AMY

[Struggle/Grunt]

BILL

Just how far do you think you can get by yourself?

AMY

GRRRRRR!

JEFF

Still there pal?

AMY

OKAY! OKAY! I believe you can save me. In fact I believe you are the ONLY one ones who can save me. (pause) NOW ARE YOU SATISFIED?!

JEFF

Well itís a good start. Now LET GO!

AMY

Let go?

JEFF

Yes, you said you believed we could save you. So show us. LET GO!

AMY

Isnít just saying the words enough?

BILL

Are you safe yet?

AMY

Well, not exactly.

JEFF

Then you better let go!

AMY

Thatís easy for you to say! Youíre not hanging from this branch!

JEFF

No, but we do know that this net is strong enough to hold you. Just let go!

AMY

(gulp) Let go?

JEFF

Thatís right. Itís the only way.

AMY

But I canít even SEE you.

BILL

We know! THATíS WHY YOU NEED A LITTLE FAITH!

AMY

But I have doubts.

JEFF

Thatís okay. The net is still as strong even if you have doubts about it. We can still catch you. Just let go.

AMY

Itís that simple?

JEFF & BILL

Yep. (or yes)

AMY

Well, okay. Here goes.

NARRATOR

You know our life here on earth is a lot like the man on the branch.

AMY

HOOOO-AA

UUGGHH!

NARRATOR

Our situation is hopeless and helpless. Our efforts will never be enough to save us from the penalty for our sin- DEATH!

AMY

Yikess! DEATH?

NARRATOR

For the wages of sin is deathÖ Romans 6:23

And our relationship with God is much like that this manís relationship with the net holders. God says that when we put our faith in Jesus he will save us for all eternity.

They replied ďBelieve in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved Ė You and your household.Ē Acts 16:31

AMY

Save us?

NARRATOR

You see, Jesus Christ, Godís perfect son died in our place to pay the penalty for us.

Then he rose again after three days to prove his power over death.

AMY

He died for me?

NARRATOR

That if you confess with your mouth, ďJesus is Lord,Ē and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

AMY

I believe you, JESUS!

NARRATOR

Now God say that if we let go of our own efforts to save ourselves and trust in Jesusí sacrifice for us, he will forgive us and give us eternal life.

AMY

Iím Saved!

JEFF

See? Told you!

BILL

You just needed a little faith!

NARRATOR

It is by Grace you have been saved, Through FAITH- And this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8

AMY, JEFF, and BILL

Now, how about you!?
