Sermon Illustrations

The Word of God changes the unlovely, and makes them lovely. I had a friend in Africa who was a missionary. He was over there eking out a living and preaching the Good News to all he could. He had spent time in the State penitentiary, but was changed by the Word of God. You see, they were all together, and when he woke up from his drug induced coma, there was the gun, and his girlfriend and friend were shot dead. To this day, he cannot remember anything, but he did time for it, and devoted his life to Jesus, and even to this day is saving lives for Jesus.
