Sermon Illustrations

Mark Noll, noted theologian and author once wrote…

“Over the long course of Christian history, the most depressing thing—because it is repeated so often—has been how tragically far short of Christian ideals we ordinary Christians so regularly fall.

Over the long course of Christian history, the most remarkable thing—because it is such a miracle of grace—is how often believers have acted against the pride of life to honor Christ.

Of all such “signs of contradiction,” the most completely Christlike have been those occasions when believers who are strong—because of wealth, education, political power, superior culture, or favored location—have reached out to the despised, the forsaken, the abandoned, the lost, the insignificant, or the powerless.”

[Mark Noll, quoted in The Case for Faith (Strobel) p. 220.]
