Preachers do weird things. One weird thing we do is prepare our sermons alone.
Every week you have to get up in front of a group of people and say words.
Those words have to be engaging, powerful, motivating, encouraging, accurate, practical and spiritual all at the same time.
Every. Single. Week.
And you prepare alone. All by yourself.
I think this started with Moses. He went up on a mountain and heard from God. He came down and told the people, “This is what God said.” We’ve never really changed the model. Preachers have been preparing sermons alone ever since.
I used to prepare my sermons alone. I would read commentaries, watch sermons and research articles, but it was mostly just me, by myself.
If you’re like most preachers, you prepare alone. But is there a better way? Could you benefit from bringing others into the process? The answer is yes, and in this episode, I'm going to show you how!
