Sermon Illustrations

There is an old pizza delivery joke that when someone comes into the shop to ask for directions the standard reply is, “You can’t there from here.” When you are loaded down with guilt, and all your emotional baggage, and all the comforts and securities of life that you have earned, then you can’t get there from here. You can’t get to the kingdom of peace. You can’t get to the promised land of grace and forgiveness unless you can lay down at the feet of Jesus. Unless you can give back to God those things that you hold dearest, you will never get there from here. Not until you surrender it all to Jesus.
