6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations


The are known from TLC’s show about their lives "Jon and Kate Plus 8." Kate couldn’t have children, so they went to a fertility clinic and had twins. They wanted another one, so they went again. This time she had 7 fertilized eggs. She was told to selectively get rid of some. Fair Weather Christians could have rationalized it, but they refused because of their faith in God. It was dangerous and difficult, and one didn’t fully form. But they delivered sextuplets. Can you say difficult? Then they allowed the show to film their family up to 12 hrs a day. Although TLC cuts out much Christian content, some still comes through. God has used the show to have a spiritual impact on viewers.
