Sermon Illustrations

Larry Lea, who used to serve as a pastor in Rockwall, Texas, has a course on the Lord’s Prayer. When he teaches people how to pray this petition -- “Your kingdom come” -- he asks them to draw an imaginary circle around themselves and not to emerge from that circle until all their priorities are in sync with God’s. I have done it, and it isn’t easy. Often, I have left the circle defeated, because I have chosen my way over God’s. But that doesn’t mean that the claim is no longer upon me, and it is something I have to do daily.
