6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

Imagine how surprising Matthew’s life was to him. One day he’s sitting at the tax collector’s booth, busily engaged in taking whatever he can get from people. That night he’s got Jesus in his house, throwing a dance party. And the next day -- the very next day -- he’s in the house of the ruler of the synagogue, a place he never imagined he would be. And he’s sharing in Jesus’ great joy -- not in taking what he can get for himself -- but in giving what he has for others.
