Welcome to Albert's Sermon Illustrations

In this blog, I have collected many stories, quotes, jokes and ideas that I use regularly in my sermons.I have tried to put in the sources and origins of these illustrations. If I have missed some or gotten the wrong sources, please let me know. I will update them. Feel free to use these illustrations for the glory of God. If you have some illustrations that you like to contribute, kindly add them to my blog, so that I and others may benefit from them. God bless!

Deep Rooted and Well Connected

The biggest trees in the world are in northern California. They are a type of redwood called the sequoia. They are over 300 feet high, and some are 100 feet in circumference. Not only are they big, they're also old. 

Botanists tell us that some of these trees are over 4,000 years old! That means that at the time that Jesus Christ was teaching in Galilee, some of them were already 100 feet high. And they're still there today!

The reason they've remained there that long is that their roots go down deep into the earth, and they also intertwine around the roots of the other Sequoia trees. They are all interconnected. This makes them strong against the winds that blow in that area.

Likewise, well-connected believers in the body of Christ will stand up to the winds that blow through their lives, and the trials that come their way.
