Sermon Illustrations


A pastor was invited at another church to preach. When he began his sermon, there was enthusiasm. The more the congregation responded loud to his sermon, the longer he went on. Finally, he noticed that the host pastor had started responding to his sermon by saying "Amen, Pharaoh."

The pastor responded: "I was trying to tell you to 'Let my people go!'"
