Great sermons and great stories share some common themes. They all have a beginning, a middle, and an ending. Other elements such as connection, tension, and resolution also factor in. That got me thinking.
Any great sermon or message is going to be first and foremost founded in the scriptures and God-honoring. But great sermons and messages share the same “anatomy” of great stories.
Today, I wanted to share with you a preaching infographic, The Anatomy Of A Great Message, that highlights how to “build” these different sections of your message. After you’ve prayed, meditated on God’s word, and have a burden for what you’re going to preach, this outline will help you build a great sermon.
