Sermons


One of the top priorities for pastors is preaching powerful sermons. Week to week, you create sermons to connect your church with God’s Word and to disciple them to a closer relationship with Him. However, finding fresh ideas for sermons each and every week of the year can be a challenge. Some weeks your focus may be on other areas of caring for your church and sermon preparation needs to take a back seat. So, how do you preach your best sermons every week? Here are a few ideas to help you out.

1) Great sermons begin with a topic - Look for inspiration for sermon help in varied places to help keep your mind open to God’s leading. Is there a scripture that has been on your mind lately? Is there a current event or trend that you could speak into? Use one of these ideas to start your thought process for your next sermon.

2) Great sermons include study of scripture - Study scripture resources on your chosen sermon topic. Search for passages of the Bible that relate to the point of your sermon to help back up it up with a biblical point of view.

3) Great sermons illustrate the point - The moral of any story usually leaves the most significant impression on the listener. The same is true for sermon illustrations. Beginning or ending your sermon with a story can help the point stick with your church.
