In the formative moments of a sermon, preachers should ask these questions:
What is the need of the congregation?
What does the Bible have to say about this need?
What life experiences have I had and what literary insights can I glean from books that might help illuminate the Scriptural help I can offer?
How can I break the subject down into understandable units that the congregation can most easily grasp?
