10 Minute Bible Sermon Must Do’s

With today’s fast paced lifestyle, capturing someone’s attention quickly, keeping them hooked and delivering your message quickly has never been more important, that makes a 10 minute bible sermon a must. We’re bombarded with information overload and it’s your job to make sure that your time at the pulpit is constructive, to the point and makes it’s way into your congregations grey matter, keeping them hanging on your every word throughout.

At the top of the list has to be preparation. We’ve all heard the phrase “Proper planning and preparation prevents poor performance” and perhaps a few ruder variations in between. For a great 10 minute Bible Sermon, good planning will keep you focused, on track and more importantly, keep your sermon jam packed with high quality, inspirational words. That’s easily said, so where does your preparation start?

First, I firmly believe you need to choose the scripture you’d like to cover. Use this as the basis of your Bible Sermon and let it keep you on track. Before every sentence your write (or say) ask yourself if it leads back to this original piece of scripture or have you gone off in a different direction. With a piece of scripture in place, carefully lay out a format on paper.

Give a brief introduction, followed by the body of your sermon, finishing with an easy-to-understand summary. The summary or conclusion is especially important as many people only remember the last part of a conversation, TV show or even a sermon. Make your summary clear so there is little for your captive audience to interpret incorrectly. I once made this mistake and the accidental outcome was potentially very embarrassing. Luckily the congregation knew me very well and realised I’d been a little haphazard with my choice of words.

Within your Bible Sermon, see if you can use a story or give real life examples. Ideally a personal experience or perhaps one you have heard about and can recall clearly. We all love stories (Jesus was a great story teller), they appeal to all ages, highlight key points and help us to remember much better. A great story will even be passed on from person to person. There’s no better feeling that giving a great 10 minute church sermon and finding out that members of the congregation have been sharing it with friends, family and work colleagues.

Finally, do your best to memorize your Bible Sermon. A great speaker never gets tongue tied and never sounds like a robot or as though they are reading from a piece of paper either. Whenever you hear a great speech, presentation or interview I can almost guarantee that those words were practised over and over again. Once your church sermon is memorized you can focus on adding emphasis to certain words, making eye contact with your congregation and concentrating on how you deliver those profound, life changing words. I’ll repeat those last few words “life changing” because that’s what a great Bible Sermon can do.

Remember, preparation is key and the better you have planned, the more confident you will be which means your Bible Sermon will be better received. Focus on a specific piece of scripture and weave it into an introduction, body with a great summary at the end (and ideally a great, relevant passage from the Bible). Memorize your sermon so that you can focus on delivery, engaging with the congregation and becoming a well respected, provider of great Bible Sermons!
