So What? A Seminar On Application (MP3)

Here is the recent seminar I ran on application with some of the guys at church. Listen or download here.

Some of what we covered:

  • 1:07 – Few helps in application
  • 3:20 – No conscious method
  • 5:39 – Application is a ‘confrontational act’
  • 7:33 – Why application is essential (a reflection on 2 Timothy 3:15-17 – what has God designed the Bible to do?)
  • 12:42 – A brief analysis of Jonty Allcock’s introduction to Luke 5:1-11 (EMA 2016).
  • 15:02 – The “explanation focused” sermon vs the “application focused” sermon.
  • 21:23 – Principle 1: The better the interpretation, the better the application
  • 27:11 – Principle 2: Apply to the whole person.
  • 29:32 – Principle 3: Apply to a wide range of people and situations (Application grid/ don’t just preach to yourself).
  • 32:30 – Principle 4: Know the difference between a clear principle and a general ideal.
  • 35:35 – Principle 5: Preach against your natural tendency.
  • 37: 15 – Quick fire suggestions (Put application into your sermon headings / Frontload the application / Consider ‘minor aps’/ Illustrations can be the application/ Questions are powerful / Leave your notes / Listen to those who apply well).
