Effective preaching is not just about giving people the facts of Scripture.
Effective preaching is not just about using great stories so that people remember the facts you have given them.
Effective preaching and teaching must be coupled with application in such a way that the hearer is changed.
This is our responsibility so that we work hand in hand with the Holy Spirit.
Losing your audience's attention? Here's the fix.
No matter your topic, or your audience, no one wants to spend all the time in preparation only to look out and see people dozing, talking, texting or moving around.
Because your topic is so important, you want them with full attention, listening to every word God has given you.
If you will take care of these two areas, I can promise you that you will have them on the edge of their seats.
