Sermon Illustrations

A horrifying event took place in San Fran last week. A tiger escaped and mauled one man to death and seriously injured two others. They are not yet sure how the tiger got loose. But some of the evidence suggests the wall was too low and the victims were taunting the tiger.

The zoo’s procedures for handling the emergency were never implemented. Zoo officials never publicly warned the people. Nor did Zoo workers move people to safety. It wasn’t until after Police where called in from outside the Zoo that the Tiger was shoot. There were too few surveillance cameras and inadequate light to aid the police; they didn’t even know how many tigers were loose or where they may be hiding.

Jesus used the illustration of a Lion seeking prey to describe Satan hunting down people.
