Scripture Reference Index:
I woke up early one morning, read in my Bible, typed my devotions, and sat on the couch to look at facebook.  (Sometimes I am surprised by how much time I can spend looking at things on the internet, while my housework sits waiting for me to get started.)  This time I read a post that was shared by Linette Tripp, my Pastor's wife, "Do The Next Thing", written by Elisabeth Elliott.  It was a great read about how she had so many new things to learn and do after her husband was killed on the mission field.  After his death, she went back to the jungle station with their 10 month old baby and continued the work her husband had started.  After reading the article I got up and made up my bed, put another log on the fire, and put a load of clothes in the washing machine.  Her writing encouraged me to "Do The Next Thing".  I feel like the Lord is leading me to continue with this thought and search the scriptures to find some of His servants who did the next thing.

"How did God let people believe in Him?  Did God let us choose it?"  Annie

Thank you for your question.  John 3:16 tells us, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life."  The word "whosoever" sounds a little like our word, "whatever" that we say to mean anything or everything.  When the Bible says "whosoever believeth" it means anybody or everybody that will believe.  God lets us choose if we want to believe in Him or not.  First we need to understand that we all do wrong things, or sin, and that sin has to be punished or paid for.  Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sin.  If we believe that He died for us we can tell Him that we are sorry and ask Him to forgive us of our sin.  When we choose to believe on Him then He will live in our heart and give us a home in heaven.  Please let me know if you have any more questions.
"Daily Devotional please add me to your list."  Kathy

"English Creek Baptist Church performed A Christmas to Remember on December 16th to a full house. The play was a blessing to all who attended, all the performers and everyone involved in the production. We looked through hundreds of plays found A Christmas to Remember sharing the birth of Christ and the salvation story in several different ways to be what we were looking for. It was our first time being in charge of a Christmas program and we were struggling to find a play with the message we wanted to share. This play was an answer to our prayers. We had to change the Wilson sons to daughters. The message was well played and received. We really liked the birth of Christ played out with the nativity scene. There are several pictures of the action on our church webpage. English Creek Baptist Church. Newport,TN. Thank you so much for making your plays available." Your friends in Christ, Kevin and Kathy Lynn

"Happy New Years!  Looking forward what God gives you for our daily devotions this coming year.  God’s blessings to you and your family."  Sally Hodges

"Easter Play - As the Christmas play director for our church, Victory Baptist Church, I chose "What Think He of Christ" from your Christmas selections. Our group enjoyed portraying the story so much they have expressed interest in getting an Easter Play together! Do you have any that I can choose from? Thanks for sharing such a wonderful play that reveals the TRUE love of God."  Renee

I am sorry, but I don't have any Easter plays.

"How much is the O Come all ye Faithful Christmas play?"  Angelia Sowers
This is my favorite play!  I spent two years researching the stories, costumes and writing the play.  We only performed it once and it is a great blessing to know that someone else can use it for God's glory!  You can print the play from the web site and see photos of our costumes.

"Our Christmas Play was a success...  It was based on "The Christmas Gifts."  The narrator portion was read by high school students.  I had two shoppers in sweaters out front that talked about buying the hottest toys for church members for Christmas, but after watching the play they decided that the best Gifts come from God and we are to celebrate his gifts with family and friends.  The sheep danced to the Charleston.  The Angels did a ballet to "Angels We Have Heard On High", the kids sang away in a manger and played rhythm instruments to the Little Drummer Boy.  The funniest picture is of a bored Joseph. Thanks for making such a great play available."
Kim Cawley, Murdock, Nebraska

"Play, the gifts of Christmas - We are going to do the gifts of Christmas for our Christmas Eve service. Is the baby Jesus in this. Thank you so much"  Vickie Lausen

We do not use real babies in our plays.  Either Mary carried a doll hidden under her shawl to place in the manger, or one was hidden behind the scenery.

"I need a play for residents in a resthome to perform for their family."  Revonda Q. Skidmore

Thank you for sending me a message about our Christmas plays.  I think the most simple one would be "Go And Tell".  It is the Christmas story from Luke 2.  When we did that one at church our young shepherds went down through the audience shaking hands and telling them about the Christ child.  At the end some of our church members told about when they heard the gospel message.  It was a very special service.  It was a witness to the audience.  Narrators read most of the lines so the actors and actresses don't have to remember many lines.  You could ask ahead of time to see if any would like to share their personal stories at the end.  It could be a very special time for them.

"Christmas plays - I am interested in using material for our Sunday School program. Thank you and God bless" 
Jo Ann Robinson

Great!  Feel free to use the play for God's glory.  You should be able to print from the web site.

"We are a very small church and have decided to do a play this year, but just need to find one with about 4 people. We only have about 22 people in our church. Very few children. Do you have one that one fit this. Thank you!" 
June Williams

I am sorry, but each of our plays uses more than 4 people.

"Are the Scripture reference from the KJV? If so, please send me the daily devotions. Thank you"  Brian Miller

Yes, I use only the King James Version on my web site and for the devotionals.

"Daily Devotionals - Please send."  Paula Jones

"I was wondering how to find the last devotional series on being hindered. I wrote out a few of them but didn't get all of them. I was wanting to share them at my church on Sunday evenings during open assembly before discipleship training class. Thank you."  John Pilcher

Thank you for the email.  It is such an encouragement to read emails sent by readers.  The previous devotions are listed by themes on the left side of the Devotions page.  I emailed the Link to you of the specific page you requested.

"Thank you so much for your web site. I was looking for Christmas plays that my Sunday school class could perform. Our church is small and our budget is also limited. Thanks to your site I am able to find plays that not only fit the size of the group but also our budget. The plays tell the whole story. I'm excited to get started and I know the kids will love doing them. Again Thank You."
Janet Gaither Green Grove MBC Chicago, IL

"Proverbs 29:18  Thank you so much for the verse of the day. I have been so upset over this election that it really has me so upset . The lie's , it's so horrible.

Love always ,Your Sister in CHRIST"  Marie Collins

"I need some resources to use for a Christmas program in my church."  Dorothy White

There are several Christmas plays on our devotional web site.  We wrote each one and you are welcome to print and use the scripts from the web site for God's glory.  You can find a short description of each play at Christmas Plays,  Each play description also has a link to follow to read the script.  Some of the plays have photo pages or other helpful information about the plays.  Some of the plays can be given by children, some by adults, and some with a mixed group.  Some of the plays are written in such a way that the parts can be read.  We have included song titles to use in the plays, and you could change them for some of your favorite Christmas songs.  I hope this helps you with your Christmas program.  Our church really enjoyed each of these programs.

"Plays"  Bernadette

You can follow this link, Christmas Plays, and read a description of each Christmas play.  Each play has a link that gives the script which can be printed.  Some of the plays have links for photo pages.  You are welcome to print the plays to use for God's honor and glory.

"Please sign me up for the email devotionals. Thank you."  RD

"My name is Kathy Lumpkin from Alvin Church of the Nazarene in Alvin Texas. We are thinking about doing the play: The Visitor. I was just wondering how long it is?"
Kathy Lumpkin Music Director

I am glad that you have considered doing one of our Christmas plays.  I don't know how long the plays take.  I would guess that we performed most of the plays in about 30 minutes.  It would depend on how many songs you used, and how quickly the characters moved on the scenes and said their lines.  You could sit and read through the play as it would be performed and maybe get an idea of how long it would take then add a few minutes for each song.

"Daily Devotional - Please Send"  Ashley Hyde

"Daily Devotional - We Have A Friend? ? Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.? John 15:13"  Corey

Jesus Christ is our friend!  We can't go to heaven or have eternal life if we have sin in our life, which we all do.  Jesus is the Son of God, and came down from heaven to give His life and die for our sins. 

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Salvation is...
Accepting that you are a sinner
Believing that Jesus is the only way of salvation
Confessing your sin and asking Jesus Christ to save you.

Then, Jesus lives in your heart and will always be a true friend.

I am thrilled that you found one of our plays suitable to use for your church!  My daughter, Susanna Key (now Susanna Key Little), wrote that one several years ago (when she was still in high school) and our church enjoyed it.  Please feel free to print and copy the script for your use.  I have tried to make it easy to print directly from the website, but if you can't get it to print correctly I may be able to email the script to you.  The play was different with the manger scene on a platform on the choir pews.  The lights were also a big part of the play and I hope you can understand how to do those at  Christmas Star In Lights.

Please let me know if you have more questions.
"Can you help me with any websites for Christmas Plays for this year.  We love using you guys' website but we have done them all and are looking to do one this year. We just built a new church this year and are growing in numbers.  We would love to have a great Christmas play in our new church this year. Thank You and God Bless You,"  Angela Wray

It was so good to get another email from you.  I do not know you, but I recognize your name and request for Christmas Plays.  I do not know of any other web sites to get Christmas Plays.  But, while cleaning out a home filing cabinet, we found two plays that our youth group performed almost 40 years ago, that my husband wrote while in college.  I also found one my daughter-in-law wrote and directed 15 years ago.  Then, because we did not have enough people to perform the one I wrote last year, my son-in-law and daughter wrote another one with less people and did it last year.  I plan to retype those four and add them to my web site.  We have Youth Jubilee this week, so I can't work on them yet, but hope to add them very soon.  I appreciate your inquiry and hope one of those four will suit your needs.

Thank you for your continued support.
