Informative to Your Audience

Informative to Your Audience

1 Corinthians 9:19-23

SUMMARY: Stimulate the thinking of your listeners, leaving them with the feeling that they learned something worthwhile.


  • Consider what your listeners already know. Rather than simply repeating what they have heard before, help them to look at the topic from a fresh perspective.

  • Research and meditate. When possible, include less-familiar facts or current events to illustrate key ideas. Think deeply about your material and the connection between the material and the facts you intend to cite.

  • Show the usefulness of your message. Explain how Scriptural points can help your listeners in their daily lives. Discuss specific situations, attitudes, and actions that are relevant to your listeners.
