Illustration on Spiritual Warfare: The King Has One More Move!

The illustration of The King Has One More Move! highlights the devil's deceptive nature in spiritual warfare. The devil may cry "Checkmate", but do not believe him because he is a liar.

Illustration on Creation: Adam and God Discuss the Creation of Woman

The illustration of Adam and God Discuss the Creation of Woman highlight the uniqueness of Adam and Eve's creation. Adam and Eve were the first humans created directly by God.

Illustration on Sin: Adam and Eve Catch the Sin Virus

The illustration of Adam and Eve Catching the Sin Virus provides us a great illustration of the infectious quality of sin. Adam and Eve at first were free of the sin virus in the garden of Eden.

Illustration on Fear: God Never Sleeps

Illustration: The Beauty Remains, the Pain Passes

The illustration of the The Beauty Remains, the Pain Passes provides us a great example of the virtue of patience in regard to why we need it in our daily lives.

Illustration: The Dog You Feed

The illustration of the The Dog You Feed provides us a great example of conscience and the common sense of the Bible.

Illustration: The Bad Egg Omelet, We Cannot Save Ourselves

The illustration of the The Bad Egg Omelet, We Cannot Save Ourselves provides us a great example of how we can neither be saved or holy through our good works.

Illustration: Choose How You Start Your Day

The illustration of the Choose How You Start Your Day provides us a great example of the all the choices we make every day. Many of us think we do not have many choices in life, but we do. We choose how we react to situations. We can react in a positive way or a negative way. From a Christian perspective, we choose Jesus everyday. We can choose to follow Jesus or not to follow him.
