I’ve been having a hard time developing my next preaching series (which starts tomorrow). I wanted a Jesus series with just a bit of Christmas. I’ve several pages of ideas, but nothing felt right. I did the rounds looking to see what others have done, but nothing hit me. I turned to theology books and skimmed my stack of books of Jesus, but nothing kept.
Then this morning I took a bath with a stack of books (which I’d already looked through), and suddenly the talks started to fall together. It was nearly immediate that verses started to pop into my head. The themes and illustrations just seemed to fall into place.
It’s so strange the way you can struggle for weeks together a message, and then it just comes together in 15 minutes. This isn’t the first time this has happened.
