A pastor's life is never quite what you might imagine. The highs are greater than could be dreamed, and will touch your heart in unimaginable ways. The anxiety and stress take an uncanny toll on pastors. Many pastors are working a full-time job in addition to being servants to their church. You can start to see why a pastor's time is in such great demand.
What if you had a resource that could help you get started on writing your sermons, allowing you to save time and still create reliable sermons?
Dr. Paul Cannings was once a young pastor himself, and he can remember the days of struggling to balance it all. Now he has compiled a resource that contains everything a pastor or lay teacher needs to write effective, moving, and biblically sound sermons for each of the fifty-two weeks of the year. In Big Idea Sermons, Dr. Cannings presents the key components of a good sermon by including sermon outlines, series, background information, illustrations, holiday messages for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mother’s and Father’s Day, and more. He also validates his points with references to the Hebrew and Greek texts. Dr. Cannings proclaims the gospel in a clear, engaging, and trustworthy manner by working with the original languages.
Big Idea Sermons is here to assist pastors, preachers, lay teachers, and anyone in a position to preach a sermon or teach a lesson. All the tools you need to write a good sermon are at your disposal. Take the time to read, meditate, and pray so you can make the best use of these tools.
