Sermon Illustrations

“Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane, But the Church of Jesus, Constant will remain; Gates of hell can never ‘Gainst that Church prevail; We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail”. (Sabine Baring-Gould in William Hendriksen: Matthew: New Testament Commentary. Baker Book House Reprinted, 2004. p. 649).
