Christ Our Substitute - Barabbas
Story of Barabbas dramatized. Compares him to the listener-- Jesus came and died to set us free, took our place just as He took Barabbas' place. Ends with sinner's prayer.
Don't Be Afraid
Very similar to "Are You Afraid" #256. Questions re a person's fears. Jesus came to free us from fear and sin, died on the cross, was buried, rose again. Jesus broke the power of Satan and we should not fear Satan, death, sickness, bird calls, dreams, or natural signs.
Giving To God
(Stewardship) - Tells of God's gifts to us: eternal life through Jesus, good things of earth, family, etc. He gives because He loves us. We also should give to Him to show our love. Explains the O.T. tithing and that we also should give to others and God's work, notas a requirement but as a way of doing God's work and pleasing Him.
A new Christian asks questions about his temptation toward sinful things and his spiritual weakness. Answers are in line with God's promises and provision. Scripture can be easily paraphrased.
God's Hatred of Sin
Refers to traditional tribal religious customs. "We did not know" the truth: peace from God; His words; His hatred of sin; Jesus' death in our place. Punishment great for those who refuse Jesus. Warning to Christians about going back to old ways. God does not let sin go unpunished. Good for areas where there are nominal Christians. Is both evangelistic and teaching.
