                                          General Planner for Preaching
                          “Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season…”—2Timothy 4.2
                            Some values from this passage in sermon planning
The Scriptures contain the God breathed truth that will set human beings free, bring healing, secure eternal life and cause people to
realize their purposes in life.
Preaching the Scripture is the God ordained way to evangelize, disciple and shape the lives of human beings.
The primary work of the pastor is to preach the Word of God.
The Scriptures are sufficient to realize all of the glorious goals of God. Preaching this ―Word from Another World‖ will build the
Church.
Sequential preaching through the Word of God, selecting the ―natural‖ preaching portions (pericopes) is the best way to deliver the
truth of God’s Word to the human heart (not the only way).
Breaking up sequential preaching with portions from other parts of God’s Word is helpful for preacher and people.
Being alert to the times, to the work of the Holy Spirit, requires flexibility.
Planning is ―Long Term‖ and Preparation is ―Short Term.‖ I have asked God to help me to spend time each morning in both of these
pursuits and to spend time each year in deeper reflection about this glorious task.
Man proposes and God disposes.

                                 Some Goals for our Staff in Sermon Planning
You will know where I am going in preaching in order to do your own planning.
You will know where I am going in preaching in order to compliment our ministries.

1
  Q. 100. What doth the preface of the Lord’s Prayer teach us? 
 A. The preface of the Lord’s Prayer, which is, Our Father which art in
heaven, teacheth us to draw near to God with all holy reverence[207] and confidence,[208] as children to a father,[209] able and ready to help
us;[210] and that we should pray with and for others.[211]
Q. 101. What do we pray for in the first petition?
 A. In the first petition, which is, Hallowed be thy name, we pray that God would enable us,
and others, to glorify him in all that whereby he maketh himself known;[212] and that he would dispose all things to his own glory.[213]
Q. 102. What do we pray for in the second petition?
2
  Q. 102. What do we pray for in the second petition?
 A. In the second petition, which is, Thy kingdom come, we pray that Satan’s kingdom
may be destroyed;[214] and that the kingdom of grace may be advanced,[215] ourselves and others brought into it, and kept in it;[216] and that the
kingdom of glory may be hastened.[217]

  Q. 103. What do we pray for in the third petition?
 A. In the third petition, which is, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven, we pray that
God, by his grace, would make us able and willing to know, obey, and submit to his will in all things,[218] as the angels do in heaven.[219]
Q. 104. What do we pray for in the fourth petition?
 A. In the fourth petition, which is, Give us this day our daily bread, we pray that of God’s
free gift we may receive a competent portion of the good things of this life, and enjoy his blessing with them.[220]
4
  Q. 105. What do we pray for in the fifth petition?
 A. In the fifth petition, which is, And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, we
pray that God, for Christ’s sake, would freely pardon all our sins;[221] which we are the rather encouraged to ask, because by his grace we are
enabled from the heart to forgive others.[222]
5
  Q. 106. What do we pray for in the sixth petition?
 A. In the sixth petition, which is, And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,
we pray that God would either keep us from being tempted to sin,[223] or support and deliver us when we are tempted.[224]
6
  Q. 107. What doth the conclusion of the Lord’s Prayer teach us?
 A. The conclusion of the Lord’s Prayer, which is, For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen, teacheth us to take our encouragement in prayer from God only,[225] and in our prayers to praise
him, ascribing kingdom, power, and glory to him;[226] and, in testimony of our desire, and assurance to be heard, we say, Amen.[227]
