Sermon Illustrations

Writing in The Christian Reader, Laura Conklin shares a family story. “My husband and I home school our two children, Seth and Glenna. One day, the lesson was on opposites.

“Glenna, who was six at the time, was being quizzed. I would say a word and she would give its opposite.

“When I said, ‘good,’ Glenna quickly said, ‘bad.’


“‘Cold!’ she squealed.

“It was time for something a little more difficult. ‘How about dead?’ I asked.

“Expecting the answer to be alive, I was delighted when Glenna, without hesitation, replied, ‘RISEN!’” [SOURCE:--Laura Conklin, Christian Reader, Vol. 36, no. 2.]
