How I Write My Study Notes for My Sermon Prep

1

Every time I preach, there are over 10 different steps that I take to get my sermon to the final outline. I've share with you previously about my first step, but here is another vital move I make in sermon preparation. After I've done most of my word studies, translation comparisons and exegesis work, I start a document that I...

Advice for Pastor and Preachers from Alistair Begg

It was my privilege to be able to interview long-time pastor and preaching , Alistair Begg, about ministry and preaching. As a young preacher, I was so enriched by all he had to say.

My First Step in Sermon Preparation

0

How you start sermon preparation is very important. I often relate sermon preparation to bearing a child. Though I am a man, and will never carry a child, I have watched my wife go through the process twice and this has made the analogy all the more vivid for me. (However, I don’t suggest that you tell your 8 month...

Essential Elements of a Gospel Call

1

The Gospel message of Jesus Christ is the core of Christianity. Yet, there are too many Christians that have misunderstood or under-defined this life saving message.

Originally I only planned on this...

“Husbands Love Your Wives” by Affirming Her Publicly

1

The Bible makes it clear: Husbands, Love Your Wives So on Sunday, I took a pause from preaching to love my wife publicly. In front of our whole church, I chose to publicly affirm my wife. I rarely use the pulpit to make personal announcements. I believe that when I am on stage to preach God’s Word, I need to do just...

You Can’t Just Preach Away the Problem

0

Many pastors think that if you preach at a problem that will fix it. I was one of those pastors (perhaps I still am at times). If you preach often, I am sure you can identify with me - you see a problem in the church, so you plan a sermon to preach at the problem, sure that in the...

The Importance of Being You in the Pulpit

0

“Become the sermon,” said the wise old sage of preaching to his zealous student, “Allow the message to become as natural to you as breathing. Don’t try to breath through someone else’s lungs and vibrate someone else’s vocal cords. Use your own.” There is great wisdom in these words. However, finding the courage to live them out in the pulpit...
