Sermon Illustrations

A dad wanted to show his son how much he loved him, so he bought him a brand new Cadillac Escalade. The new SUV was fully loaded with chromed aluminum wheels, leather interior, three DVD players, a touch-screen CD player, a state-of-the-art navigation system, and a sunroof. The dad spared no expense! When he gave the gift to his son, the boy was ecstatic. “Oh, dad! Thanks so much. This is the care of my dreams,” he said. “But I noticed that there isn’t a trailer hitch. I could pull my boat if there were a hitch.”

“Oh no, son.” The dad replied. “If you want that, you’re going to have to pay for that yourself. I’m not spending any more of my hard earned money!”

Isn’t that ridiculous? But this is exactly how some people expect God to act towards us. Listen, He gave you His Son…what would He now withhold?
