Drei Kriterien für die Länge einer Predigt

Das sind drei gute Anstösse von Brian Croft:

1) Based on where your people are, not where you think they should be.  We should always challenge our folks to grow.

2) Based on how good and seasoned a preacher you are.  I fear so many of us who love the Puritans read that they preached 1 – 2 hour sermons and think, “Hey, I want to be like the Puritans.”  The problem is many men who want to preach an hour, are not good enough or seasoned enough to preach an hour…yet.

3) To leave your people longing for more, not less.  Every preacher has been there.  We can sense we are loosing our people and we still have 10 minutes left in the sermon.
