Read on to find out more on how to preach without using notes and how to Preach with Conviction!
- Sermons send people to sleep, they are at best, second hand opinion, and at worst, only words.
- Testimony is vital and believable – Why? – because it is what we have seen and believe, and therefore the conviction of truth can be heard in our voice. When we relate what happened to us, people can believe that as fact. When you share some truth of which the Holy Spirit has convicted you, you will be believed because the conviction will ring in your voice! This is the evidence of the holy Spirit. That is How to Preach with Conviction.
So, How Do I Do That?
- If you have no set requirement for the theme of the day, then grab your Bible, and head for your quiet place and just ‘wait on Him’ until you are told [how to pray] what to do.
- If you are working to a set theme, like lectionary readings, just go into your quiet place with your Bible and start ‘meditating’ those readings. As you read a verse or a phrase, close your eyes and let the Holy Spirit of God illuminate it to your understanding.
- Follow each ‘train of thought’ thru to its end and the subject matter will be filled out and explained.
- Just keep doing this until you feel there is no more to be understood. It may take several sessions of quiet to get the whole message. Strive for Spiritual Excellence!
- Stop thinking about it and go on with your usual weeks activities until you feel to do it again.
