Sermon Illustrations


A lady was on a lake steamer when her little girl fell overboard, and the woman was almost frantic. A gentleman on the boat had a large Newfoundland dog. The dog was directed to leap into the water and save the child. He did so and swam ashore with the little girl, part of her dress in his mouth, I suppose. The mother seized her saved child, and kissed her again and again. Then turning to the dog, she hugged and kissed that dog, with a heart full of gratitude to the animal.

That’s more than some people have ever done for Jesus Christ, although He hung on the cross to save them from sin and hell.

-- William Moses Tidwell, "Pointed Illustrations." From a sermon by Gerald Flury, Our Calling, 10/25/2010
