6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

A young eight-year-old boy lost part of his right arm in a tragic accident at home. The boy soon began to struggle with great sadness and depression because of his injury. As he recovered at home the new pastor of his church came to his house to pay a visit. The boy’s father announced that the pastor was there to see him, but the boy showed little interest as he sat in his room. When the pastor came into his room the boy’s interest suddenly peaked - the pastor had only an empty sleeve where his own right arm had once been. He said "Son, I know exactly how you are feeling and what you are going through!" The boy and the pastor quickly became fast fiends. Jesus Christ can comfort us because He has been through everything we experience in this life (Heb. 4:15).
