It has been almost a week that I have been a little silent. It all started last week when I attended the 17th Associational Meeting of Leyte Association of Southern Baptist Churches.
The meeting has a theme: “Steadfastness For A Better Harvest” taken from the key verse Galatians 6:9. Since Ptr. Joe Ytom was not able to come due to health reason, the meeting was still blessed by equally powerful speaker, Ptr. Joe Fernandez.
The meeting’s lectures were about worship leading lead by Cainta Baptist Church worship team and Preaching Lessons taught by yours truly.
About 70-80 people attended the meeting and it was indeed a great blessing to each one of us. God’s message centered about the “Bountiful Harvest” in the Lord. Ptr. Joe talked about harvest season. By quoting the incident where Jesus ask water from a Samaritan woman, Ptr. Joe explained that the Samaritan woman have become the harvest, and immediately became a harvester where she went to her relatives and told them about Jesus Christ.
Yours truly shared about the simple procedure about preaching. The lecture is about two main things, sermon making and preaching. To summarize the four main process of sermon preparation, just remember PROW
About preaching, I talked about the propriety of preaching and all about preparation before you preach.
