This one is for preachers and teachers. I know how some may struggle to make responsible and effective sermon or class preparation. All of us want to do a good job of communication.
I simply wish to encourage you to let the Word have a chance to meet the ears of those who hear. Nothing replaces the power of the Word....nothing.
This is my outline for this morning:
• II Cor. 9:6-11
• I Pet. 5:5-7
• II Cor. 12:7-10
II Cor. 1:1-12
Whether some use more notes and others less is not the point. What I want you to see is the confidence we all can possess regarding the Word and the people who hear. The Bible is still the message to be preached and Jesus is the topic.
Our illustrations are key as they can become the windows for hearers to see into the Word. But verses and more verses carry the power. Try not to lose confidence in this fact.
