Sermon Illustrations

There was a Jewish man who became a Christian missionary. He became a pastor. But his family disowned him for becoming a Christian and refused to see him for fifteen years. Then his father became ill with cancer and asked him to visit him on his death bed. But his father refused to talk about spiritual matters with his son. So his son prayed that his father would come to know Jesus before he died. Three days before his father died he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior because another person reached him with the gospel before his death. Jesus wants us to be that other person who reaches others with the good news of God’s love.
