Sermon Illustrations


I want us to note this: When people came to Jesus, Jesus never, never, gave them money. He never gave them stuff. And yet, what do we ask for? Stuff. How ridiculous. So then, isn’t it obvious? If Jesus never gave anyone money… or stuff, while he was walking the earth in His ministry, why In the world would He be giving away stuff to us now? You know, we could ask Jesus to give us a few thousands dollars to help us with our financial problems right now, but then, some time later, we find ourselves back to needing a little more cash - because money is not the problem. Don’t look at the manifestations of your problem, what is the source of your problem?
