Sermon Illustrations

Welcome to! With over 20,000 illustrations, anecdotes, stories, jokes, sayings, maxims, and quotations on more than 2,000 topics, this site is a valuable resource for preachers, teachers, youth leaders and anyone who is tasked in public speaking.

All illustrations on this website are yours to use. There is no sign up requirements, no membership fees, and nothing to download. Use these materials to spice up your sermons, teaching materials, devotionals, and most of all, use it for God's glory. Freely received, freely give.

However, if you find the contents in this website inspiring and useful, I would very much appreciate if you can add a link on your websites, blogs, and social networks, so more people can benefit from this web site.

You can also contribute by submitting via email your favorite illustrations, anecdotes, and quotes. As time permits, I will try to incorporate them on this website.

The ads on this website is made available in order to sustain hosting, development, and maintenance. If appropriate, you may visit them.

This site is a work in progress. It will be updated on a regular basis. If you have some suggestions on how to further improve this site (my web publishing skills are limited), please drop me a line at
