Sermons that are rich in interpretations of, and allusions to the Bible have more appeal and benefit to the hearer that those whose origins are from secular sources.
In addition to adding color, substance, and meaning to sermons, Bible references serve to education the congregation in the range of Biblical history.
The sermon illustrations contained in this section are abbreviated, and are followed by a textual reference.
Sermon illustrations are listed here under their relevant subject headings.
Except were otherwise specified, the text will be the New International Version (NIV) of the Holy Bible.
