Homiletics 101

How does the art of preaching work?
Here is a lesson from Paul (1 Corinthians 2:1-16):
– Do not use big words.
– Forget everything except Jesus Christ and especially his death on the cross.
– Do not deliver your teaching and message with skillful words of human wisdom.
– Allow room for convincing proof of the power of God’s Spirit.
– Yet DO proclaim a message of wisdom to those who are spiritually mature.
– Accept that it is only our own spirit within us that knows all about us; in the same way, only God’s Spirit knows all about God.
