Sermon Illustrations

Imagine a town which has everything to offer: State-of-the-art hospitals, prestigious schools, award winning entertainment, and many other things. There is nothing a person could need which couldn’t be found in this town except one thing: the water makes people sick; any time someone dares drink it, he or she becomes deathly ill. What would happen to that town? It would surely dry up as people moved away in search of drinkable water! Your heart is a vital resource in the same way water is a vital resource, and it must be protected at all costs.
