Sermon Illustrations

Norman Rockwell painted another famous picture which revealed the value of being able to go and worship God freely in America. The two Big Wars during Norman’s lifetime helped him to be reminded of how blessed we were to worship God freely.

i. He painted this picture along with three others after hearing the president lay out the 4 Freedoms – Norman went to work for His country. When he painted the 4 Freedoms which were laid out in President Roosevelt’s State of The Union Address they ended up touching the heart of America. See the pictures of the 4 Freedoms.

1. Freedom of Speech

2. Freedom from Fear

3. Freedom from Want

4. Freedom of Worship

I sometimes wonder as I look around at the new America today if she still places a value on the church and the message she proclaims to this nation today.
