Sermon Illustrations

For example, did you know that according to a recent Barna survey of those who become Christians, 43% do so before the age of 13? Almost half do so before they become teenagers. This has huge implications on who we should focus upon and evangelize. Not only that but out of those who became Christians before 13, half of those were led to the Lord by their parents and another 20% were led to the Lord by some friend or relative. Only 7% accepted Jesus in response to a minister’s prompting. God is doing a new thing (as He always does) and we need to join Him in that work instead of trying to manage Him through methods that He blessed in the past.
