Sermon Illustrations

Latimer, who lit the evangelical candle in England, said 400 years ago to the bishops of England,

“I would ask you a strong question. Who is the most diligent prelate in all England, that passeth all the rest in doing his office?”

And he added, “I will tell you. It is the Devil. He ordereth his business. Therefore, you prelates, learn of the Devil to be diligent in your office. If you will not learn of God, for shame, learn of the Devil!”
