Sermon Illustrations

Long ago a poor woman from the slums of London was invited to go with a group of people for a holiday at the ocean.

She had never seen the ocean before, and when she did see it, she burst into tears. Those around her thought it strange that she should cry when such a lovely holiday had been giver her.

“Why in the world are you crying?” they asked. Pointing to the ocean she answered, “This is the only thing I have sever seen that there was enough of.”

God has oceans of mercy. There is enough of it – and God delights to show his mercy and compassion.
