Sermon Illustrations

The story is told of a carpenter nailing shingles when he lost his footing and started to slide off. As he was sliding he began praying, “Lord, oh, Lord, help me.” Still he kept sliding. Again the man prayed, “Lord, oh, Lord, help me.” He kept sliding until he got to the edge and a nail sticking up caught hold of his pants. After he came to a stop he said, “Never mind, Lord. The nail has hold of me now.”

Crises may cause us to cry for help. But a true Christian feels his blindness every moment. He or she is constantly calling out for help, and joyfully receiving God’s grace. Will you come and follow Jesus?
