Sermon Illustrations

Let me give you a human example of faith.

• You go to a doctor who you do not know. This doctor is a human, made of flesh and blood.

• This doctor gives you a prescription you cannot read.

• You take that prescription to a pharmacist you have never met.

• The pharmacist gives you a chemical compound you do not understand.

Then you go home and take the pill according to the instructions on the bottle.

(Adapted Reese Blanchett’s contribution to Sermon Central) This is acceptance.
