Heard a couple new-to-me sermon illustrations lately that I liked, so I thought I’d share. The first is from Kevin DeYoung, and the second is from Alistair Begg (quoting someone else, as you will hear). No transcripts, alas, (they’re less fun anyways) so you’ll have to click through and watch at the times indicated.
1. Red Rover is like the Gospel! Start just after 30:00 here. (A bit earlier if you want the whole context, or, you know, you could watch the whole thing.)
2. For something to get clean, something else has to get dirty (said in a proper Scottish accent). I’m afraid the illustration only works with the proper accent. Start around 19:45 here. (Same note about context.)
