3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

This past week, another and I hosted a Hospice luncheon at which the speaker was a woman named Elaine Magruder. Elaine is a nurse who lives in Midland, Texas, and she tells how God sent her to Vietnam to start the first hospice program there. To hear her story is truly inspirational.

Elaine says that our goal has to be “to let the Word of God scrutinize us. God,” she says, “detects those dispositions in us that won’t work in his service. What lies underneath is obstructing” what God wants to accomplish in us and through us, and “what’s needed is giving up the right to [ourselves].” And she adds, “It’s the thing that is so very hard to give up that God wants [us] to give up.”
