Teacher Tip: 4 Stages of Lesson Prep

I heard a well known preacher tell his 4 step process for sermon prep, and I believe all of these stages are important in preparing to share God’s Word.

In coming to the text I…

1. Think myself empty. 

  • Read the passage multiple times and then write down everything I can think of on the passage.
2.  Read myself full. 
  • Reading whatever textual helps I have.
  • Read as long as I can read withy the tyranny of time.
3.  Write myself clear. 
  • Remember that clear in my mind doesn’t mean clear through my lips.
4.  Pray myself hot.
  • Goal:  Forget yourself.

I hope this is inspirational and helpful for you!
