Sermon Illustrations

From Aaron Saufley- My new book "The Jumbo Shrimp Gospel" was inspired by a conversation I had with my 7 year old. I read her the part of Jesus’ sermon on the mount where Jesus talked about turning the other cheek and getting undressed when someone takes your shirt (yeah, that’s what he said). After I explained it to her, she said, "Dad, that’s stupid!"

And she’s right.

The life of an agent of the kingdom of God goes against the grain of everything we hold dear. We desire safety, security, and comfort. The gospel of the kingdom of God calls us to risk, danger, and suffering. It doesn’t make sense, but it’s divinely brilliant.
