Sermon Illustrations

Well I want to talk to people about Christ, but I’m scared.

What kind of excuse is that? Imagine for a moment that you were the parent of a child that just got ran over. And you went to one of the people who were standing on the side of the street, watching, and you ask them “why didn’t you warn my child about the car?” I cannot even picture the amount of anger I would feel, if the person replied “I didn’t feel it was MY place to tell them they were wrong. He had to make his own decision”.
