Sermon Illustrations

Have you ever found and old flashlight you haven’t used in some time. And you got to get it and it doesn’t turn on. You think those batteries were new when I put them in. Then you unscrew the top of the flashlight and the batteries have corroded and there is acid everywhere. The problem was you kept the flashlight somewhere safe and comfortable on a shelf or drawer. Batteries aren’t meant for that they are meant to be used. Christians are not designed to be warm and comfortable on a pew we are designed to be used.
