Often when I am preparing a message, I'm asking myself, "What is the point I'm going to make in this message?"
Granted, that's a valid question. But there is a more important question to ask that goes a level higher than that: What's my objective for this message?
To know if you were successful at something you’ve tried, you have to know what you were seeking to accomplish. This is true in every area of life but especially in preaching.
This is why I nail down the objective of my message early on in the process of writing it. The objective drives the process from there.
In this episode, I will show you how to arrive at the objective for a message and lay out one more vital question you must ask before writing any sermon.
