Sermon Illustrations

It is not the preacher that should get glory. It is the God of the message.

A basketball costs anywhere from $5 - $50.

But what is the worth of a basketball signed by Michael Jordan?

A sleeve of golf balls cost around $10.

But what is the worth of a golf ball hit by Tiger Woods?

A football can be purchased for about $20.

But what is the worth of a football thrown by Peyton Manning?

It is not the instrument that gives value, it is the one using the instrument.

What a privilege it is to be a preacher. Not because preachers are superheroes or deserve glory. But God has decided to use preaching to help lead others to the Good News of Jesus Christ.
