hazeleyes-heartfeltgoodbyes asked: Okay so im leading a bible study in my youth well its actually a sermon, and its about trusting God through the hard times and keeping the faith, i dont really know how to set it up or what to start with, any help?
1st: go with your heart. Just share. I’ve actually pretty much completely stopped writing notes for my sermons.
2nd: find a good scripture to open up with about faith.
3rd: Use an illustration. Tell a story from life or something.
4th, give a few points about keeping faith that can be thought on through the week.
These are things I shoot for. I think if you do that you’ll be yourself and you’ll have a message that is short enough that you’ll keep attention of those listening, yet long enough to be of substance!
Most of all, follow the Holy Spirit!
Be blessed and have fun!
