Sermon Illustrations

I was once invited to lay hands on some people who had obeyed to an altar call during an open air meeting. I asked one sick old man whether he believed in Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour and he told me, no. I again asked him if he was ready to receive the Lord Jesus into his life and be saved, and he told me that he was not ready for the same. He wanted Jesus to heal him of his infirmities but on the contrary, he was not prepared to give the healer room into his life.
