I have a six pack for you

Last year I made it a point to plan out my sermons for the entire year. It was difficult, but extremely beneficial. So much so that since around November I’ve anticipated getting to January so I can do it again. Call it good organization, being prepared or just hermeneutical nerdiness. It works for me now.

If a sermon doesn’t connect to the spiritual life of the people who hear it, then what good is it at all? That’s a rhetorical question. The next six or not. Since I want my words to connect with my listeners’ spiritual life, I want to hear what they have to say. You may not see how, but if you answer AT LEAST one of the following questions, you’ll go a long way in helping me prepare for our Sunday’s sermons this year.

Here’s your six pack (of questions):

  1. What time of the year do you look forward to most? Why?
  2. If you didn’t have a Bible to read for yourself, what would you want to know most about Jesus?
  3. What is the hardest part of being a Christian?
  4. You’re stuck on a deserted island. What one book (besides a Bible) do you want to have?
  5. If Jesus promised to answer one question for you, what would you ask?
  6. Why are you a follower of Christ? Or, why are you trying to follow Christ?

Thanks!  Stay blessed…john
