We’re building this new area on our website for FCA members—to help you find that story, statistic, or quotation that can strengthen the impact of your sermon.
Why? Because preparing sermons can be difficult. Finding the best way to communicate God’s Word to today’s generation can seem an elusive task at times.
So we’re inviting our members to help each other. We’re hoping that this will become a community effort—sharing the stories that have worked effectively for us.
We know, of course, that nothing can replace the anointing of the Holy Spirit. When it comes to delivering a transforming message, neither polished oratory nor the in-depth research can accomplish what God alone can do.
At the same time, we also know God wants us to hone our speaking skills and develop our gifts. He wants us to use available resources. In other words, Don’t bury your talent!
Check out the illustrations. Then send in a story that worked effectively for you. And this area takes shape, let us know if you have suggestions on how to improve it. Simply contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
May the Lord bless you as you work to faithfully and effectively serve him!
Browse the list below for stories to reinforce or illustrate the points of your sermon. (Note: When topics are repeated in the list, it means there are multiple illustrations—a different one for each time the word appears.)
Share your best stories with others! Let other pastors use an illustration that worked effectively for you by clicking HERE and filling in the form.
