Sermon Illustrations

Some years after Corrie Ten Boom had be freed from a Nazi Concentration Camp, she was scheduled to speak at a church. As she sat on the platform and looked out at the congregation, she saw the prison guard who had been so cruel to her sister just prior to her death.

She struggled and wrestled with God on that very platform. How could she forgive him? She realized though that Jesus Christ had come and died for this former Nazi prison guard as much as he died for her. So how could she not forgive him? Yet the pain was so real. She had to turn it over to God.
