Not too long ago I preached a sermon where I felt God was leading me to change up the introduction entirely. This occurred to me minutes before I was about to preach. I sat on the front row during worship and it was clear to me – the plan I had for the sermon opening just didn’t fit.
The direction I felt like God wanted me to go was to share a personal story that would be a fairly vulnerable, transparent thing to share. This was a risky proposition when completely extemporaneous, but I’ve told the story many times so I went with it.
This experience made me think about the best ways to change up your sermon when you feel like God is leading in a different direction with the sermon.
