Sermon Illustrations


Henry Cloud in How People Grow writes, "Virtually every emotional and psychological problem, from addictions to depression, has alienation or emotional isolation at its core or close to it. Recovery from these problems involves helping people get more connected to each other at deeper and healthier levels than they are."

That from the chapter entitled God’s Plan A: People.

We are made to need each other. We are made to live in close community with each other. We are made to live out faith in relationship with each other: receiving grace, receiving gifts from God and receiving healing for our souls because of the faith of faithful friends.

When Jesus saw THEIR faith he said "Friend, Your sins are forgiven."
