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!

The Short Man Who Sank The Slave Ships

William Wilberforce was another small man at 5 feet and 4 inches. He was known for his eloquence and, in 1780 at the age of twenty-one, entered the British Parliament. 

Six years later he joined Thomas Clarkson and began his fight against slavery even though the bill to end the slave trade didn't become law until 1807—twenty-one years later. More than any other person, Wilberforce helped end the British slave trade.
