Sermon Illustrations

When I was in high school, there was two twin brothers who were one year ahead of me in school. They turned 16, they got their licenses, and then a nice used sports car appeared in their driveway, paid for, at least in part, by dear old dad. Not too much time passed before they were in an accident in their sports car. Dear old dad had the car towed back home, where it sat in the driveway, front and center, where we could see it the next day of school as the bus pulled up and picked up the two shame-faced brothers. Dad let it set there a few weeks, too, before he had it fixed. I am sure the brothers never forgot that car! How did you wreck your life? How did I wreck mine? We could all tell horror stories of one kind or another, but what we have to remember is that God can fix the brokenness, he can pick up the pieces, he can make us whole again! And when God fixes things, they stay fixed. The plan of salvation was put into place 2,000 years ago on Calvary, and it is still good today. GOD FIXED THINGS.
