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!

14,000 Parts

As you drive your car on a daily basis, you may be aware of only a few of its many parts. 

You turn the steering wheel, look into the rear-view mirror, adjust your radio station, press the gas and brake pedals, and move the turn signal up or down. 

You probably notice only a few of your vehicle's parts. But do you know how many parts the average automobile has? 14,000! according to the Encyclopedia Britannica. 

Though only a few of those parts may be noticed on any particular trip, all of them together make up the automobile that gets you around. 

 It's the same way in church life. Though only a few members may get much notice, it takes all the parts to make up the body of Christ. 

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it (1 Corinthians 12:27).
