Sermon Illustrations

A fellow pastor shared this incident that happened to him while he was ministering on a college campus in Minnesota. He said, “I had the opportunity to share the gospel with Glenn, a student and musician who sang and played his guitar in local bars and restaurants to help cover his tuition costs. While having lunch with him one day, Glenn related an incident that occurred while he was playing at a local eatery.

During a break from his set, a table of people invited him to join them. He did so, and they immediately surrounded him and began talking about Jesus. He recalled, "I finally just got up and left. I was so offended; we didn’t agree on one thing!"

Recalling our previous lunch conversations about religion and Christianity, I said, "Glenn, there is not much we agree on either."

I’ve never forgotten his simple yet profound reply. "Yeah, but you listen to me."
