What Does (or Should) Sermon Preparation Look Like?

ABCave2013_042_edited_BWNote: this is a post that will most likely only be interesting to preachers. But all are welcome to enjoy nonetheless!

Allistair Begg is a fantastic and faithful preacher. He is true to the text, clear as crystal, winsome in delivery, and, not to be unsaid, his accent is just the best. When it comes to preachers, he is one of the best of our day.

Therefore, when he talks about preaching, I listen. In the video below, Pastor Begg offers six steps he takes in his own sermon preparation. There is more to be said here, for sure, but there is not less. Current or aspiring preachers, take notes.

His steps are…

  1. Think yourself empty.
  2. Fill yourself full.
  3. Write yourself clear.
  4. Pray yourself hot.
  5. Be yourself.
  6. Forget yourself.

Listen to him explain each point here. Also, if you like what you here, get his book on preaching here.
