Sermon Illustrations

What if we had entered this sanctuary this morning to find it filled with cigarette smoke? Yet we fill God’s house with it! What if you found a spittoon ate the end of each pew? Yet God’s house is filled with tobacco juice every time we put just pinch between the teeth and gum. What if every Sunday School class were a bar and the alcohol flowed freely for every student? Yet we fill God’s House with it! What if we came here today and pornographic movies were playing on the screen? Yet we fill the sanctuary of God’s house, our minds, with these images. Why do I compare this church building to our bodies? Friends, God does not live in this house (the church); He lives in THIS house (our bodies)!
