PostSubject: Making Sermons Interesting   Thu Mar 26, 2015 4:33 pm

Here are tips to make your sermons more interesting:

Collaborate with colleagues and friends to get fresh ideas for sermons. After awhile, it helps to get input from others. Your colleagues and friends probably have some creative ideas you may not have thought of before. Make the collaboration itself fun by sitting at a coffee shop together. When you are having fun with your friends talking over coffee, the creative ideas will start flowing. Forget about the lectern and just enjoy fellowship with your friends while coming up with sermon ideas. Who knows, the coffee shop sermon prep itself may make you think of an anecdote to add to your sermon.

Speaking of anecdotes, simply telling stories from the lectern helps make the sermon more interesting. Real life stories help people relate better to what you are trying to teach then. Think about how what you are preaching about can tie into a real life story that happened in your life, or in the life of someone you know.

If I ever preach a sermon I'll keep this in mind.

I hope the tips helped! Here are some general preaching tips:

Avoid Overuse of the word “I”

As a preacher, you are teaching God’s Word, and lessons from it, to people in your church. Listen to/watch a past sermon you preached to see how often you said “I’. Use “I” less in your sermons.

Here's some more preaching tips:

Sticking to God’s Word

Try to make sure that when you are preaching from the pulpit, you are not bringing in your own personal opinions or opinions that are popular. Stick to the Word of God, Jesus’ opinion, not your own, or the opinion of the majority. Keep the focus on what the Bible says.

Here are some ideas to using videos in your sermons:

Record Video Testimonials, Show Them in Church

...record video testimonies of people in your church. The video testimonies could simply be people sharing how they were saved, or how a particular sermon helped them in their walk with Christ. Video testimonies leave a lasting impact on anyone who watches them, as it lets people see how an individual's life was transformed by the Gospel.
