SERMONS

START, CONTINUE, AND END WITH PRAYER
THE MAN WITHOUT A GOAL SELDOM GETS ANYWHERE
MUST HAVE A DEFINED POINT BEFORE HIM
——————————–STAGES:
ALLOW ABUNDANCE OF TIME FOR THE SERMON TO GROWTH
SET GOAL IN WRITING
CHOOSE TEST INLINE WITH THE PURPOSE
EMBODY THE PURPOSE IN A CONCLUSION
ASSEMBLE ALL SORT OF MATERIAL
LET THE ALL MATTER INCUBATE
BEGIN TO THINK ABOUT THE TOPIC OF THE SERMON
ARRANGE THE MATERIAL ACCORDING TO THE AIM
ILLUSTRATIONS?
INTRODUCTIONS?/APPROACH
WRITE OUT THE SERMON AS A WHOLE (ONE MINUTE /ONE HOUR)
REVISE MANUSCRIPT THE NEXT DAY
PREPARE TO DELIVER
IN THE PULPIT FORGET ABOUT PREPARATION
THRUST GOD FOR THE BLESSING (ISAIAH 55:10-11…For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.)
NEVER PREACH ABOUT HISTORICAL CHRIST  BUT PREACH ABOUT THE LIVING CHRIST…HE LIVES
TOPICS BASED ON SCRIPTURES …TEST ONLY
THEME IS THE SERMON CONDENSED, SERMON IS THE THEME EXPOUNDED
FOLLOW A PLAN.
