Sermon Illustrations

I did an experiment by asking everyone in the auditorium to say their name outloud three times. Beforehand I asked one man to say the name of Jesus three times outloud. After everyone had said their name outloud three times I asked if anyone had heard the name of Jesus being said. Only one person raised their hand. I pointed out that with all the voices of the world competing for our attention, many times it’s hard to hear Jesus. We need to quiet our lives and get in tune with the Holy Spirit.
