Sermon Illustrations

A little boy came to the Washington Monument and noticed a guard standing by it. “I want to but it.” “How much do you have?” asked the guard. “35 cents.” “You need to understand three things,” the guard explained. “First, 35 cents is not enough to purchase the monument; in fact, 35 million dollars is not enough. Second, the Washington Monument is not for sale; and third, if you are a US citizen, you already own it.”

We need to understand three things. 1) All of the money in the world is not enough to purchase the spiritual blessings in Christ. 2) The spiritual blessings are not for sale. 3) If we are in Jesus Christ, we already have every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
