Sermon Illustrations

It’s interesting how we share faith. We all have our own way based on our own abilities. I have always been impressed with those who can quote the appropriate scripture in times of crisis. My sister, Jean, can do that. My pastor in San Antonio, Texas, could do that. I just can’t do that. I’m no good at memorizing. It’s not my skill. That was one of the reasons I was initially afraid to tell my sister that I felt a call to ministry. She might have said, “But, Annie, you don’t even know the scriptures well enough to quote them!”

But she didn’t say that. She said, “Annie, with your business background you will make a great pastor. We need pastors who understand business as well as faith.” To share faith, we must first have it and then we must share it in ways that are true to us.
