3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

I remember as a kid watching the TV series called "KUNG FU" staring David Caradine. The blind Master Po (Keye Luke) calls his young student "GRASSHOPPER" to "EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED". We are not grasshoppers but we often see ourselves as such (Numbers 13:33) and we don't need a Shaolin monk to tell us to expect the unexpected. We are not created to think small and expecting the unexpected is already a given in the Christian life.

What's the point of facing all this opposition?

In Matthew 10:17-18 Jesus says "BEWARE!...You will stand trial before governors and kings..." WHY? "...because you are My followers. But this will be YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO TELL THE RULERS AND OTHER UNBELIEVERS ABOUT ME." OH.
