Sermon Illustrations

Many years ago, I bought myself a car which my children dubbed ’a banger’,although I bought this car to regain my freedom from car thieves who visited my previous car on three occasions, it however served me very well and fit for purpose. I packed it with total freedom anywhere I liked even without locking it. One day I came out of the local post office and my banger won’t start. I called the Automobile Association mechanics and he told me the fuel line was broken. The connection was broken and the car won’t run. A Christian connection to Christ is important just like the fuel connection in a car is, when that connection is broke the car won’t run. It is the same with a Christian, when our connection to Christ is broken, we become useless and dysfunctional.
