3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

Rabbi Eckstein also testifies to the willingness of Israeli citizens to unashamedly help others. This should free us as Christians from our hesitant inhibitions in reaching the lost for Jesus. “. . . Israelis are not too shy, embarrassed, inhibited, or intimidated to stand out in a crowd and assist others. They feel at home here, not disengaged from one another as we in America often feel. If a person needs help, they get involved.” [SOURCE: Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, The Journey Home (Chicago: Shavit House, 2001), 164.]. The unchurched are lost without Jesus. We can not disengage ourselves from them. We must be involved with them. Don’t be intimidated. Give your shyness, embarrassment, and inhibitions to the Holy Spirit, so that He may use you in building Christ’s Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
