Sermon Illustrations

All human beings are equally created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27). God loved the world so much that He sent Jesus to lay down His life for us (John 3:16). The “world” obviously includes all ethnic groups.

I like to use the following illustration which works as well with adults as it does with adolescents and children.

I have a bowl, a mason jar and two eggs 1 in a white shell and 1 in a brown shell.

Holding them up one at a time, I ask: "What is this?" .answers:.."an egg" or "a brown egg" or a "white egg".

Next I crack open the eggs one at a time and deposit them in the mason jar, disposing of the shells in the bowl..

Now I hold up the jar and ask if anyone can tell me which egg came from which shell!

Point Made!!
