Sermon Illustrations

The story is told of a little girl who was touring a large, ornate cathedral which had "saints" pictured in the elaborate stained glass windows. She asked her father, "Daddy, who are those people?" And he responded, "Honey, those are saints, do you know what a saint is?" She thought for a moment and then said, "Why they must be people who let the light shine through." And while she was wrong, she was rather right wasn’t she? Saints are simply Christians who by their lifestyle, let the light of Jesus Christ shine into the world.
