Burning Bush Sermon Illustrations

The burning bush was a striking, unforgettable sign and experience. To a certain extent, there is a bush that burns tor each of us; some little radiance, at least, each of us has caught from that bush, and life's most sacred memories gather about that flame. You know best when it was and what it was in your life. Perhaps it was a deep conviction, a strong urge to do good, to serve God in your generation. Perhaps it was a light that kindled in the still countenance of a loved one who had passed through the gates of death. Perhaps it was a light and a voice that came to you in the midst of some great trial or sorrow. But whatever and wherever it was, you recognize it now as something different and apart from the common territory of life, the ordinary experiences of life. Moses was faithful to that desert experience. Even at the very end, in his farewell to the people of Israel, he spoke of "the good will of him that dwelt in the bush."

Have you been faithful to your voice, your experience? If you have not, then now is the time to find your way back the burning bush and renew your vow ere the holy light goes out.
