The Three Parts of the Introduction

image Dave Reddick comments that there are three parts to a sermon introduction:

The First Sentence-what will immediately grab their attention without promising more than the sermon can deliver.  Word it carefully.  Speak it out loud. 

The Body of the Introduction

The Transition-a sentence (no more than two) that shows the connection between the introduction and the body of the sermon itself and "often tells the hearer what the sermon is about".

More on introductions to come.
