Sermon Illustrations

The hope of heaven is a powerful strength for godly living that many people seem to virtually ignore in their daily lives. It was Myrtle Erickson who wrote:

Think of stepping on a shore and finding it heaven

of taking hold of a hand and finding it God’s hand

of breathing new air and finding it celestial air

of feeling invigorated and finding it immortality

of passing from storm and tempest to unbroken calm

and looking up and finding it home!

Paul Lee Tan, Encyclopedia of 7700 Illustrations (Rockville, Maryland: Assurance Publishers, 1979) p.545. Identifying Myrtle Erickson as the author came from old notes I took from a sermon by E.M. Fjordbak at Lakewood Assembly of God in Dallas, Texas.
