How do you ensure relevance in your preaching
OK..first relevance doesn’t mean that you never preach about the ethical demands of the text.
Some folks think that relevance means you only preach about the free gift side of the gospel.
Naw that ain’t it…
Relevance simply means that you preach in a way that is UNDERSTOOD by the people.
Who creates a sermon?
My homiletics professor, Dr. Brad Braxton, said, “You can’t write a sermon down because a sermon is an event.”
You can’t write down an event. You can write down some notes that help you deliver one side of the event.
I ain’t talking about manuscript versus outline…
