The Model Sermon
The Model Sermon
Principles of Preaching from the Book of Hebrews
You’re called to be a faithful and effective communicator of God’s Word. But what exactly are the core principles of a “biblical sermon”? Is there a model for us to follow? Or did God leave it up to us—his gospel ambassadors—to figure it out as we go?
Reinvigorate Your Preaching
It turns out that God did include a blueprint to guide us within the canon of Scripture—the Book of Hebrews. The Model Sermon will not only help you master the major preaching principles found in Hebrews—itself a sermon—but also offers practical steps to immediately apply each to your preaching.
You'll get a better grasp on the marks of a good sermon, down-to-earth ways to bolster your preaching, and inspiration to keep lifting up the person and work of Jesus Christ!
15 principles as a model for preaching today:
- Getting out of the way

- Identifying with your people
- Trusting the Holy Spirit
- Making an appeal
- And more
