What Makes A Good Sermon?

Lenny Luchetti interviewed four outstanding preachers:  Keith Loy, Steve DeNeff, Linda Keefer and Dave Ward on the art and craft of preaching.  It's a fascinating conversation, which can be found on Wesleyansermons.com .

I especially liked Steve DeNeff's perspective that a good sermon must be. . .
  • Relevant
  • Biblical
  • Interesting
  • Convicting
To this, I add one more. . .
  • Anointed
A preacher's job is to deliver a message -- not to give a sermon.

Pastor, when you're in the pulpit tomorrow morning -- may you preach a relevant, biblical, interesting, convicting, and anointed message!  Amen and Amen!
