How to Prepare a Message

It’s been a long time between posts recently folks and I missed it as much as you 🙂 It’s been really, really busy lately and part of that busyness was a conference Kristyn and I attended in Arkansas last week.

Pastor Rick Bezet of New Life Church shared something with us that I though was worth sharing with all of you. He discussed 6 key elements of a teaching that he believes is exemplified by Jesus in scripture and should be followed by pastors and leaders everytime they teach. Here they are:

1) Revelation

2) Illustration

3) Humor

4) Transparency

5) Intelligence

6) Application

This list is obviously important for pastors and teachers but it is also important for anyone claiming to be a follower of Christ. There are two underlying principles to all 6 of these elements and that is love & relevance. Jesus had both and, no matter what position of leadership we might find ourselves in, we are all called to share His message with others. We need to do so by looking at the  example He left for us and this list is a great start.
