Pontential Convert:
The Christian life isn't bad at all. Sure it's not always easy, but you know, when things get tough, God helps me through. Jesus is a really good friend who I can talk to any time. In fact, because of what He's done for me, I'd like to go into mission work, so others can hear about God's love for them, and have the chance to ask Him into their heart.
Satan:
You little good for nothing! Get here!!
Demon:
Yes Boss! Right away, Boss!
Satan:
Remember Joy, that girl who we nearly lost to His side? Well, we lost her but we still have a chance to get her back. She's thinking about going into mission work. We don't want that. Becoming a Christian was bad enough, but her going into mission work, is absolutely disgusting! I want you to get out there and stop her.
Demon:
Yes Boss! Sure! Not a problem, Boss!
(walks over to PC)
Demon:
You know Joy, mission work is really horrible! It's lots of hard work! You'd hate it!
Pontential Convert:
No, I don't think so. I've been to heaps of missionary meetings and every missionary I've met has been always wanting to go back. They love it, despite all the hardships.
Demon:
But what about your family? And your fiance? You'd have to leave them all behind!
Pontential Convert:
Yes, but Jesus commands us to go and make disciples, so that means being involved in mission work. In Matthew 19:29 it says "everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for my sake, shall receive many times as much, and shall inherit eternal life."
Demon:
But it's so far away! You'll be in another culture, with a different language, and you'll have no friends. You'll be lonely!!
Pontential Convert:
No I won't. There will be plenty of other people to talk to and besides, God has promised that "He will never leave me." Working for the Lord gives more riches and blessings than anyone could ever imagine.
Demon:
Yes, riches. What about your career? You've only just started, and already you've been promoted.
Pontential Convert:
Yeah, I know, but, well ...
Demon:
And all the missionaries are poor and if you get sick, who's gonna pay? What about hospitals? In the middle of Africa they don't have any!
Pontential Convert:
Yes they do! There's more than one hospital in Africa. Besides, who said I'd be going there? God will look after my health. That's my least concern.
Demon:
(to boss) Oh Prince of Darkness, Beast of Destruction, Ruler of the Earth, King of the underworld!
Satan:
Yes? What is it? (You slime bag!!) Demon I lied to her about everything, and Boss, I was really convincing and ...
Satan:
And she believed you? (Demon shakes head) NO, I didn't think so. Can't you ever get anything right?! Fool!! I send you out to do a simple task and you can't even cope with that! Worthless idiot - you'll pay for this!! Let me show you yet again how it's done. (Satan walks to PC, speaks firmly but softly) So Joy, You're thinking about becoming a missionary? Well, that's good. God will be really happy with you. But remember, you're still young. You've got the rest of your life to plan. Your career, perhaps marriage and a family. Don't rush into it. You don't want to make the wrong decision. By all means, get involved with your church and local missions and even give money, if that's what you really want to do. But always remember, you've plenty of time to make the big commitment...
Demon and Satan:
(person mouths with them) Plenty of time.
(all freeze, then all walk off stage)
