Sermon Illustrations

Are you all familiar with the ‘Footprints’ poster that essentially says that when times get rough and there was only one set of footprints in the sand as you walked with God, that this is the time when God carried you. How inspirational, but it’s a lie! What drivel…it all started within a heresy of Gnosticism which saw the remaining footprints on the beach to be ours because it asserted that Jesus did not have a human body that would leave footprints…he was only a phantom. For those who are believers, the Bible says in Ephesians, “he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, So tell me….in the ‘Footprints’ poster…when did you walk by yourself? When were you not being carried? That poster is not good! When has God left you? Never! He’s always carried you! Always!
