This year our Baptist Association will be having its second annual Pastor's Conference. As one of the speakers in the event, I feel unworthy in comparison to the other pastors who will be speaking. I give all glory to God for any benefit derived from any sermons I preach or any piece that is written, since all things and affects come from Him. (Romans 11:36) I thought I would share both today and over the next couple of days the portions that I will be presenting in the realm of sermon preparation, presentation and invitation.
My prayer is that for any preachers out there who read this blog that perhaps you can glean something useful. Even if you are not a preacher, we all as Christians have a responsibility to know Jesus and make Him known to others. I know for myself, I'm always learning and read other's blogs to enrich my own understanding. So with those thoughts in mind, let us begin considering what typically goes into a sermon's preparation, presentation and Invitation.
