Questions for discussion…

What motivation do you feel like you are hitting on the most in your preaching?

What is the easiest motivators with your context?

What’s at stake if we motivate with the “human” motivations?

  2. Being sure you build good tension up front.

  3. Making sure our big idea is clear and memorable.

  4. Speak to the lives people are actually living - not just aspirational ones.

  5. Reading scripture as though it’s the most authoritative words we will say that day.

  6. Engaging all the senses.

  7. Checking our “Christian assumptions”

  8. Remember the “sitcom principle”

  9. Come in for a smooth landing.

  10. Let God have it.
