How to Teach
Get the MAIN POINT OF THE MESSAGE
How to get it? From God's Word. You should get your main point or focus from God in prayer with God's Word before you.
The stated main point can often be a specific text of Scripture.
You should be able to state it in a word, phrase or sentence (but not longer).
Keep referring to this point throughout the message.
Use SUPPORTING PRINICIPLES
Use 3 or 4 main principles to describe or add body to the main point.
These principles should come out of the Scriptures you are using. Don't just make things up to sound good.
Use SUPPORTING SCRIPTURES
You can use your notes, a concordance or Bible study tools on the internet.
You can read the Scripture aloud or say it in your own words (but always should give the reference).
Make sure that the Scripture is heard loud and clear as you back up the main point.
Use SUPPORTING TESTIMONIES
Be sure to use at least a couple of testimonies / personal examples / stories of how the supporting principles relate to the main point of the message.
Make sure that the testimony or story does not take up the whole time of the message.
DELIVERY OF THE MESSAGE
You want to draw people in with a story, testimony or Scripture that supports the MAIN POINT.
Eventually, you want to clearly state the MAIN POINT.
BODY OF THE MESSAGE
You can use a Scripture or a simple statement to introduce the first SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE.
Each SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE should be backed up by Scripture.
You can use another story or testimony to back up each SUPPORTING PRINCIPLE.
As you move through the BODY of the message, it is helpful to re-state the principles you have already talked on.
Be sure to re-state the MAIN POINT.
Clearly state the APPLICATION point(s). This can be introduced with a question.
The APPLICATION point can be focused on one point. It shouldn't be more than three points. People will forget what to apply very quickly.
APPLICATION can begin with praying together. It can end with worship, all praying out, people coming forward, etc.
** If nothing else, the audience should be left with the MAIN POINT, SCRIPTURAL back up and how to APPLY.
