Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. - Psalm 119:105

Preaching Helps

Preaching, good sermonizing that is, is taking the precepts of Scripture and proclaiming them to your people in Love and in Truth!
 
We are called to do so with Passion (our love and gratitude for Christ), in Power (His), with Conviction (we believe and practice what we say), with Clarity (we do our best to present others God's principles) and in Truth (we say what it says and not what it does not)!


HERMENEUTICS


Hermeneutics is about how to prepare sermons. Hermeneutics is the science and art of Biblical interpretation. It is a science because it is guided by rules within a system; and it is an art because the application of the rules is by skill, and not by mechanical imitation. Here is a complete guide to how to effectively research and prepare biblical, impacting, true and relevant sermons to your congregation. All the tools you need to know!

Activists, repudiating the obvious meaning of Scripture, run the risk of the sin of unbelief.

 

"Enjoyed your message, pastor," say the many who meet and greet him at the church's door. All the while, the pastor is curiously racking his grey matter to figure out just what they enjoyed. Wonder why? It must be because this sermon really was good. After all, it sounded so good on the Internet that the pastor "borrowed" it so that his congregation could be as blessed by it as he was.

The Difference Between Preaching and Yelling

"Preaching is not people hearing you, it's you hearing from God." Dalton was bewildered at his father's presumption that he could tell him about ministry, and he turned to walk away.
