Sermon Illustrations

Francis Schaeffer struggled to know God’s will in his life. His father wanted to hear from him soon as to what he was going to be and do in life.

His heart was all out to pursue medicine and become a physician. His parents desired him to take on engineering. There was a tussle. It could go either way but God would have something which none of them had even dreamed in their wildest dreams.

Finally in desperation, Francis prayed and flipped a coin whether to pursue full time ministry or take up a secular profession.

The decision – pursue full time ministry. He went on to become a full time pastor, philosopher, lecturer and founder of LABRI Fellowship and wrote numerous books.
