6 STEPS TO WRITING A SERMON

6 STEPS TO WRITING A SERMON

 

New to ministry? Seasoned pastor? Not sure where to start? Writing a sermon can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Follow this step by step guide to writing your next sermon.


1 | DIAGNOSE YOUR PATIENT

Give a message that is personal to your audience.

Find out what your audience is struggling with: anxiety, lack of faith, etc.

Have conversations with the people you are going to preach to

Ask the pastor or leaders about your audience

 


2 | PRAY

Ask God to give you a scripture that would speak to the problem.

Pray for a new perspective from the scripture you will choose

Ask for a specific solution to their specific problem

 


3 | IDENTIFY THE PRESCRIPTION

Find the prescription for your patient’s problem.

Identify a passage of scripture that directly deals with your audience’s issue

 


4 | OBSERVE THE TEXT

Write down your observations from the passage.

Write down 50 observations

Out of those observations take three that speak to you most, they will become your main three points

Sprinkle the other observations into your sermon

Get everything out of the passage

Find a fresh perspective

 


5 | WRITE A THESIS STATEMENT

Write a sentence summarizing your message’s main idea.

Make sure that your ideas are organized

Be sure that your main three points line up with your thesis statement

Replace any points that don’t summarize your main idea

Your sermon should only communicate one message, not multiple

 


6 | CREATE AN INTRODUCTION & CONCLUSION

Connect your message to an intro and alter call.

Start with a funny story or moment that ties into your message

End with a call-to-action that helps the audience apply what they have learned to their own life
