Sermon Illustrations

The widow of Stephen Oake whose husband was a special branch police officer who was stabbed to death in Manchester by a terrorist, said in the Daily Telegraph article… That while she realized there was going to be some dark day’s ahead, she felt assured that “God is real.”

After sentencing in April 2005 Later during the sentencing of the man who murdered her husband she explained she had forgiven the man who killed her husband and also prays for him every day.

This tells me that there are times in our lives when our faith is serverly tested.But we must learn that these crisis points can become turning points, deepening points and healing points, such is the case for the widow of the late Stephen Oake.
