Unique passage

Every passage of the Bible is saying something about something in a unique way.

In the normal flow of church life, the passage you preach on Sunday will not be preached again for quite a while. 



If it is in a series on a specific Bible book, how many years until you plan to preach from that book again? If it is a seasonal text, like an advent passage, there is a chance you will preach it next year, but probably it will be a couple of years at least.



So, the passage you preach on Sunday will not be preached again for quite a while.  Here is something to ponder:



Will your preaching of that text really bring out the uniqueness of the passage for your listeners? Will the message be text specific?  Will it make clear that passage’s main idea? Will it draw out that passage’s implications?



It is so easy to start in a passage and end up preaching a generic message.  The problem with that is that you could preach a generic message from any passage, or from none. 



Even if the truth you share is stunningly rich and wonderful, what about that passage?



If we have a high view of Scripture then surely we also need to have a high level of confidence that if you have selected a passage to preach, then the listeners should get that passage. 



Just as every fingerprint, snowflake, dog’s nose is unique, so is every passage in the Bible.  Every passage is saying something about something in a unique way.  Will your listeners get that passage’s unique something this Sunday?



If not, if you just slide into a generic message, then it will be years before that passage has a chance to be preached into their hearts and lives again.  Don’t miss the opportunity!
