Preacher’s Guide: Tips to Come Up With a Good Message for Your Next Sermon
Sometimes, it’s easy to come up with a sermon topic. This may happen when you want to address something going on in the world. The following are a few things you can do to come up with Bible sermon topics.
One thing you can do is just look for your topics in the Bible by going section by section. You don’t have to come up with a topic if you preach by section, and the Bible is large enough to cover hundreds of sermons. Going through each section of the Word makes it easy for a church to read the whole Bible.
Another thing you can do to come up with good Bible sermon topics is to use what others have used before. You can go to sites where pastors have uploaded ideas you can use for yourself. Of course, you can add your own flavor to each of these sermons, but most of the work has been done for you.
You can just let the sermon be spontaneous. In this instance, you just allow the Holy Spirit to guide you to the right passage on the spot. Some pastors have used this as an opportunity to allow members to share something as well. Everyone has the Spirit in your flock and has something to share if you allow them to.
Hopefully, you find your way towards a good sermon using this guide. Try to follow your Spirit as you come up with your sermon, and everything should fall into place.
