The Best Source of Illustrations
We assign a number to a Bible story when we only refer to it by name. We assume that everyone knows the story anyway and will easily see how it illustrates the truth. First of all, not everyone knows the story that well. Many may not know the story at all. Second, if you want to let people see and feel the truth you are illustrating, then tell the story! Here are a few guidelines to help you use your favorite stories and word pictures as illustrations in your sermons.
Sermons That Helped Me
It’s worth the effort to revisit our written sermon, tighten sentences, and find words that draw people into the message. We want our sentences and words to bleed with the love that Christ has for us.

Can You Use This?
The wounds on the hands of Jesus speak a far greater story of love that rescued us from eternal death, give us peace with our God, and carry a promise of protection forever.
