5 Tips for Topical Sermons

Justin Holcomb at the Resurgence gives this advice for pastors, especially in light of a special Sunday like Mother’s Day.

Number 5 is particularly helpful:

Your role is not to serve as a host for a special moment or to be an armchair critic of where our culture has goofed on motherhood or viewing women. You are a preacher of Good News. Proclaim the person and work of Jesus and his Gospel. The grace upon grace from Jesus (John 1:16) is the most relevant and needed thing for you to communicate.
