What's At Stake?

The “Lifehouse Everything Skit” originally performed at Winterfest 2006 [an annual Church of God youth event] has deeply moved the hearts and souls of America [click here to read the CBN article]. More than 6 million people have viewed this 5 minute skit making it the 2nd most viewed video on GodTube. Click the triangular play button or read the summary below. At the beginning of the skit, a young woman experiences the joy and innocence of finding her first love in Jesus. Then sin, coming as a mere “distraction”, overwhelms the young woman in traps of sexual impurity, the party lifestyle, bulimia, cutting, and deception that leads toward suicide.

Christ, with loving power, fights the fallen powers of darkness and rescues the young woman reminding us that Jesus already won the battle for our souls on the cross. And that we have victory over our sins through our faith in Him. 1 John 4:4 says it this way: “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

Do you know what’s at stake?
