Criteria For A Good Introduction….May 5, 2008
According to Bryan Chapell, a good introduction:
1. Arouses Interest
2. Introduces Subject through an identifiable Fallen Condition Focus.
3. Prepares for the proposition in concept and terminology.
4. The opening sentence will stand alone.
5. Becomes Personal (indicates the reason the message is vital for the listener).
6. Bonds to Scripture
Last night, I thought our Senior Pastor did a great job with his intro. It fulfilled all the above criteria and was pretty much a model example. See if you agree. The intro begins at 1:40.
