1. POSITIVE IS THE NEW BLACK
2. ASK ONE QUESTION, OR EXPLORE ONE ISSUE
3. MAKE YOUR POINTS ACTUAL POINTS
i.e. not catch phrases or random words
This one I picked up from Richard Coekin from London. Richard saw one of my outlines 7 years ago and lambasted it. It was a lashing I needed. I had a good question. That part was OK. But my answer wasn't an answer. It was a series of random points. Like this:
- The Case for Love.
- Jesus and Love.
- Being Transformed.
Make your points sentences. Short ones. Memorable ones. But actual ones. If you can't say what your points are in the seconds before you preach - in actual helpful sentences - then how will your hearers know what they are? We won't remember it if you haven't said it.
