Sermon Illustrations

I heard a story about a missionary who was trying to stir up interest to get people to go to a foreign country to preach the gospel.

At the end of the service a woman, dragging a little boy behind her, told the missionary, "I just feel like God is calling me to be a missionary."

"He is, indeed" replied the missionary - and pointing to the little boy, said:

"And there’s the first little heathen he wants you to preach to."
