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!

Of Darkness and Shadows

I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the light.
Mary Gardniner Brainar

When a dark shadow looms large in your life, never fear it. For there is a Great Light behind it.
Albert Kang

The brightest flame casts the darkest shadow.
George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

What would your good do if evil didn't exist, and what would the earth look like if all the shadows disappeared?
Mikhail Bulgakov

... there are shadows because there are hills.
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Just as tall trees are known by their shadows, so are good men known by their enemies. 
Chinese Proverb

Death is but a shadow! We rather be hit by the shadow of the lorry than by the lorry itself. Are we afraid of the speeding shadow of the lorry? Never! Should we then be afraid of death? Should not! Like David, we can all say, "yeah, though I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil, for God, you are with me." Psalm 23.
Albert Kang

Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.
Walt Whitman
