Sermon Illustrations

For example, I know a young lady, sixty years of age, who was diagnosed with cancer 4 months ago. This was a shock to her at first, but then her attitude was upbeat. She did what the doctor told her to do. She took her chemo treatments. During this time, there was a smile on her face and positive words flowed from her lips. Last week she had such terrible pains that she went to the emergency room. Her doctor told her there was no more that could be done, gave her some morphine, and sent her home to be comfortable. She is a Christian woman and responded with these words: “Nevertheless, I will cast my burden on you and you shall sustain me. I will launch out into the deep with you.” She exercised her faith.
