Everything...

My friend, Janel, introduced me to this skit, done to the music of Lifehouse, a song called "Everything." I couldn't help but pass it on!

This is the professional video version:


The girl represents all of humanity...our desperation...how we conform to things of this world. The other characters, sins...temptations. Lust, greed, drunkenness/addiction, vanity, self-mutilation/suicide. Things we unknowingly, unwillingly at times, allow to pull us from Him. Things that bind us.
Jesus died on the cross to abolish sin for all those who believe in Him.
These skits rejoice in the grace, mercy, compassion, and love of God for all human kind.

God will definitely use these to change lives. They've become a phenomenon among churches across North America. All over skits such as these are being put on by various churches, just a few of which are being shown on GodTube & YouTube. Here's one of the best in my opinion:

Put on by Lakewood Church's L7 Youth...



Here are some more:

1. Janel's version...done one evening at Winterfest in Tennessee.


2. Put on by the Next Level Youth of Alpha & Omega Church in Miami, FL, go here.

3. By Shift drama team at CRCC in Cooper City, FL, go here.

4. SEP SoCal teen camp's version, go here.

5. Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church's youth ministry in Houston, TX, go here.

6. Powerhouse's Revolution Youth does a great job (bad camera angle, though)...go here.

7. Mount Calvary youth's version, go here.

8. An Indianapolis church, go here.

9. Another random, unnamed church, go here.

10. For another okay version, go here.


And if you want to hear the song & sing along but don't know the words, go here.


Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written,
‘For your sake we are being killed all day long;
we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.’
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

~Romans 8:35-39

Here I go again! Tears streaming down my face! I remember doing skits like this to ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ when I was in the church youth group. It was and still is very moving!!!

I cry every time I watch this. The things that Satan does to romance and tempt us away, and it's so quick. I love how hard she fights to get back to Jesus. I'm glad it shows that He fights for us, but we have to fight for Him, too.
