Sermon Illustrations

“For most churches, very little of what we do is dependent upon the Holy Spirit. If He were not to show up, most churches would never miss Him. Billy Graham is credited with saying, “95% of today’s church activities would continue if the Holy Spirit were removed from us. In the early Church, 95% of all her activities would have stopped if the Holy Spirit were removed.” I agree.” (Bill Johnson, When Heaven Invades Earth).
