Leading Through Sermon Illustrations

Leading Through Sermon Illustrations

Available on:

Sermon illustrations are a point of tension for some pastors. In this episode Matthew Woodley and Kevin Miller discuss a new angle for sermon illustrations, to help cast a vision for your church and how Christians should live. Kevin also talks about the importance of using positive illustrations, examples of people getting it right. You'll find that illustrations are opportunity to include people on the margins in your sermon, not in a political way—to display the beauty of the gospel, that it's truly for everyone.

Matt Woodley serves as the Editor for PreachingToday.com and the Pastor of Compassion Ministries at Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton, Illinois. He is also the author of God With Us: The Gospel of Matthew (IVP).
