A Different Approach

A Different Approach Sermon Illustration

Sometimes, searching for the answer to the same old problem requires an absolutely different method. In Red (directed by Robert Schwentke [Summit Entertainment, 2010]), Frank Moses is trying to figure out how to break into the CIA records room. The lock is unbreakable. His solution? Break through the flimsy drywall outside the door and open it from the inside. When Jesus walked on earth,  much of the religion of the time was centered around searching for salvation in Moses, but what the people really needed was Jesus, a completely different way of approaching the problem of sin through a completely different fully human—fully divine solution.
