Sermon Illustrations

I want to give you the chance to receive a blessing. I have something for you to taste. It is fruit. You can receive it but do not take it. Hopefully you will find it good. I ask you to worship the Lord in this. Praise God for the goodness of fruit that nourishes us. Praise God for this symbol of the sweetness of His presence. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

It is a sweet, sugary treat. So if you have problems with sweet, sugary food then you may want to bypass the actually receiving of the treat and instead receive the blessing. No rotten tomatoes here. Just the sweet presence of God. Come all you who hunger and thirst for righteousness. (My wife and I served sliced apples covered with sugar and cinnamon that had just been cooked in the microwave).
