A Thought on Preaching

24 Jun

There are so many ways in which one can preach a sermon.  Something that I have thinking about as I prepare texts for Sunday school, the pulpit, and other occasions is the Trinity.  In light of this, I want to encourage others to pursue a “Trinitarian” approach to preaching.  By this, I mean:

-Proclaiming the work of the Father’s hand in the particular passage, and how it reveals His character to us
-Announcing the way in which the passage fits into God’s redemptive plan, culminating in the Gospel of Jesus Christ
-Make known the Spirit’s role in applying this Word to believers’ hearts and minds, to sanctify them and lead them to obedience

This will look different in each sermon, and one aspect may shine more brightly than the others, but, we should always remember that each person of the Trinity is involved in the biblical text and in the lives of believers. And reminding those we lead, as well as ourselves, of this, can be both encouraging and edifying.  

What are some things that have proved helpful to you in sermon prep, teaching, etc.?
