Attention!…Preachers! by Regina A. McKinney

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19 (NIV)

Attention:.. For those who will preach Sunday morning,Your Convictions and practice should go together.The message from the Word is the invitation, maybe you can make it more inviting, if you have preached it to yourself 1st……Just saying….

For most you just want to say…A message is not just 3 points and a poem. It is not just a way to fill up 30 minutes of time..People have come for a message from God for their souls. No one should dare not give them anything less.A sermon needs a well organized body of truth so that God’s people will not go away hungry and the unsaved will not go away unaware of their need of Christ as Saviour….PREACHERS,YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TEACH EVERYTHING YOU KNOW OR HAVE STUDIED FOR THE MESSAGE TO BE EFFECTIVE.

Be like a good salesman – close when you have made the sale..A sermon is a message from God’s Word that should inform the mind, stir the emotions, and move the will to action or a decision… The preacher should double check the sermon for aim, clarity, doctrinal accuracy, good illustrations, and a message from God, not just the preacher…. when preaching,..Stand up to be seen..Speak up to be heard..Sit down to be appreciated..(Some have learned this as Stand up, speak up and shut up. Some never learned the last point.)…Do not force the Bible to fit your views. Let the Bible teach you…
When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense, or you may have nonsense.
