Sermon Illustrations

I remember one of my former employers referring to a Christian colleague as "a bit of a Methodist!" It was meant as a "put down" but I regarded it as a badge of honour! O yes, persecution in various forms still exists! We must be willing, if need be, to be ready to accept rejection and ridicule from those opposed to the cause of Christ. David found his discipleship costly, but we, like him, will find it will be worth it all.
