Sermon Illustrations

C.S. Lewis once wrote; as I stood there that morning to preach on forgiveness. In my own life, I find that to be such a struggle. Thirteen years ago a dear friend of mine tried to torpedo my ministry. I suspected as much. I confronted him on it, and he confessed that that was exactly what he was doing; and he asked my forgiveness. I said to him, "I forgive you." To this very day, every day, I am still trying to forgive him.
