Sermon Illustrations

Close with story of old man in poor house years ago with Baptist young preacher fresh out of Bible College. It was his first encounter with an old dying person. The man was lost, he confessed he was a great sinner and what could he do? The young preacher said his mind when blank, then the Lord dropped John 6:37 in his heart. He repeated to the old man and his eyes lit up. With his dying breath he quoted And him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.EHe cried out with his last breath, Lord I am coming home now!
