'And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.' (Luke 24:25-27)

As we start to gather momentum on the blog, and others join the team, so we'll hopefully see an increase in the number of sermons etc.

One of the main aims of our blog is to share sermons we have written. Mainly, this will be in the form of written texts or notes - which, we admit, are slightly different to the finished, spoken sermon. But we want to encourage feedback, so that together we can improve our confidence and skill, as well as hearing accurately what the text is saying.

Some of the areas you might want to consider are:

- Introduction - does it 'grab' you and make you interested? Does it introduce the message?

- Exegesis - does it explain the text accurately and make it understandable?

- Illustrations - are the illustrations used helpful in shedding light on the message? Have you any other illustrations that could help the sermon?

- Application - where does the application come? Does it flow from the text?

- Overall impression - how do you rate the sermon? Have you any suggestions to improve it?

Please try to answer these questions in the comment you leave, after reading the sermon.
