How to preach the word of God? Who can preach?

Everyone is called to preach the word of God and it can be preached in many different ways. There is no single formula to preach. However, the Bible gives a lot of advice on how to preach the word of God.

Preach means announce, expose or explain the word of God. Some people are called to preach with sermons and Bible studies, but we can all preach in different ways:

  • With our example: actions often speak louder than words; living the gospel is a way of preaching the gospel
  • In conversations: a conversation about Jesus and faith is a way to preach the word of God.
  • With personal testimony: You can explain the word of God by recounting your life experience with Jesus.

And those who are by the way where the word is sown are those who, as soon as they hear it, immediately Satan comes and takes away the word that has been sown in them.

Mark 4:15

1. Keep the message centered on the word of God

The Bible should be the foundation and center of all preaching. You can use other stories and examples to illustrate situations, but the main message should always be based on the Bible. Only the word of God has the supreme authority.

All Scripture is inspired by God and useful to teach, to rebuke, to correct, to instruct in righteousness, so that the man of God may be perfect, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3: 16-17

Try to base your ideas and arguments on the Bible. Your main purpose in preaching is to reveal and explain the word of God so that others can gain understanding and be edified.

2. Seek to be honest and careful

The preacher needs handle with care the word of God. This means being careful in preparing to preach, seeking God's guidance, and seek the correct interpretation of the scriptures. Careful preparation shows respect for the word of God.

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

2 Timoteo 2: 15

Another part of the "correct handling" of the word of God is to be honest. It's okay to admit that you don't understand something or that there are parts of the Bible that are hard to accept. Do not distort the truth to say what you want. In the end, this only causes more problems.

3. Avoid pointless controversies

Yes, it is important to help people resolve their queries, but there are some controversies that are useless. It is very easy to get caught up in a controversy over the details, losing sight of the most important teachings of the Bible. Secondary themes deserve only a secondary place in the preaching.

But reject foolish and ignorant reasoning, knowing that they produce altercations. And the Lord's servant should not be quarrelsome, but kind to everyone, fit to teach.

2 Timothy 2: 23-24

In any controversy, when you preach, always look for the most important topic behind the problem. Don't get caught up in the little things. Always aim for the greatest truth in the Bible. For example, with the issue of homosexuality, the most important questions are: How does God treat sinners in general? What is a marriage? And what is the purpose of sexuality?

Every preacher is different and has his own style of preaching. With time and experience, you will develop your own way of preaching.r. However, all preaching must have a basic structure:

  • Beginning: the presentation of the theme of the preaching.
  • Medium: the development of the topic, with examples, arguments, etc.
  • End: the synthesis of the main ideas of preaching and practical application.

It is also important to consider practical aspects such as the time you have to preach, the characteristics of the listeners (such as your level of education or knowledge of the Bible), the resources available, and the type of participation the church will have (a small group can participate much more actively than an audience of a thousand).
