Thought of the day

Jesus didn’t preach 3-point sermons, he preached 1-point sermons — and most of the time he didn’t even tell people what that point was!Jesus rarely explained his stories, in fact only once in scripture are we told specifically why Jesus told a story (Luke 18:1), and only a couple of his story explanations appear. Jesus trusted his stories to do their work in the hearts of the people listening.

Maybe we should not go on to explain our illustrations and stories…but instead be like Jesus and trust in the story/illustration along with the help of the Holy Spirit to have its own impact. The more time you spend explaining the story, the less impact the story has. What do you think?
