6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations


I was watching the Olympic rowing competition the other day and found it fascinating. It’s called "Sculling," where eight men are in a boat, powerfully rowing to the finish line. I was amazed to see their back to the finish line and they were totally dependant on the man sitting in the front of the boat looking forward and yelling out the cadence with every row, keeping the eight men totally focused to the finish line.

That’s a lot like the race of faith – I don’t know when I will be at the finish line – today, tomorrow, next week, 10 years, only Jesus knows when I will reach the finish line. My responsibility is to focused on Him and let my faith trust God for the finish line!
