Sermon Illustrations

This is real – Jesus is alive.

I few years ago I along with others prayed for a man who was miraculously healed. Turns out the very moment that we were praying the man was fully healed. I mean jumping out of the hospital bed – pull out the tubes healed. His family urgently called that afternoon filled with fear. They had to talk with me. I was dumbfounded – why would they be full of fear? Shouldn’t they be celebrating the good news? They responded that they had grown up in the church and learned all about Jesus Christ – but it wasn’t until that very day, when this man was healed, that they understood that it was “Real” and they were filled with fear. What would God do next?

They had no idea what they had been dealing with all these years.
