Sermon Illustrations

A young girl’s aunt took her out for the day and they went to a great cathedral. It was the first time the girl had ever visited such a magnificent place and she sat gazing in wonder at the sunlit beauty of the large stained glass windows. “Auntie, who are those people in the windows?” she whispered. “They are saints,” her aunt replied. After a long pause the girl said in a loud whisper that could be heard by those who sat nearby, “Now I know what saints are. They’re not people who wear strange clothes and always frown. They are people who let the light shine through!”
