Sermon Illustrations

Read about Dr. Harry Ironside where he was called upon at his home by two nuns to collect money for a certain charity. He invited them inside and as he talked with them, he quickly and skillfully steered the conversation around to the subject of saints. Then suddenly he asked, "Would you like to meet a saint?" The two nuns quickly replied, "Yes."

"Well," said Dr. Ironside, ’"look at me. I am a saint. I am St. Harry."

The two nuns were very shocked, but this gave Dr. Ironside the opportunity to explain to them what a saint really is.

A saint is not a man without fault but a man with faith in Christ.
