Sermon Illustrations

In Yorkshire, England during the early 1800’s two sons were born to a family named Taylor. The older one set out to make a name for himself by entering Parliament and gaining public prestige. The younger son chose to give his life to Christ. With commitment to Christ, Hudson Taylor turned his face toward China and obscurity. As a result, he is known and honored on every continent as a faithful missionary and the founder of the China Inland Mission. For the other son, however, there is no lasting monument. He became known as simply as the “brother of Hudson Taylor.”

Man’s hall of fame is only good

As long as time shall be;

But keep in mind God’s hall of fame

Is for eternity.
