Sermon Illustrations

Pastor Jack Hyles once wrote that, “When the average person thinks of eternal life, the first thing that would enter into his mind is endless life. Certainly endless life is included in eternal life, but there is far more than endlessness to eternal life. It is not only endless, but it is boundless. It . . . [is] not just long continuation; it means life all the way on, all the way back, all the way up and all the way down . . . Eternal life is more than duration or longevity. It is also a quality of life . . . It is living now in the always . . . What a wonderful thing is eternal life . . . It is boundless, but not only will we have it forever; it is a quality of life that we have now.”
