January Sermon Illustrations

January 20, 2010

In one of the Reformed churches in France, in the chancel back of the pulpit there are three panels. The first is for the law, and the inscription on it is, "Thou shall love the Lord thy God" (Matt. 22:37). The second is for the gospel, and the inscription upon it is the great verse from John (3:16): "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." The third panel is for the psalms, and the verse written upon it is that from Psalm 118 (14): "The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation."
