6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

This week my brother-in-law, Bob, and his family stopped by to see us on their way to South Padre. They were full of enthusiasm as they looked forward to getting away from the grind. Four days later they stopped by again on their way back to San Angelo. The funny thing is, they looked worn out. They were sunburned from days at the beach. They were sore from learning how to surf. I guess the high point of their vacation came when they were riding bicycles along the beach and the seat fell off Bob’s bike (taking Bob along with it.) They joked that they needed to get back to work to recover from their vacation!
