Here is Pastor Wrinkles’ next installment enjoy and join in the fun!
Professor Reuben Hartwick taught Old Testament and Pentateuch when I went to Bible College. One of the exercises he required of us was called “Chapter Charting”. Professor Hartwick required us to break down each chapter of the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible) to come up with as many sermon topics/titles as possible. Points were awarded per chapter. Any chapter with less than three sermon topics received no points at all. Extra points were given for the most creative sermon ideas.
It was a tough exercise but one well worth practicing! Here are my chapter charts for Genesis 5 and 6.
Chapter 5 Sermon Topics:
1. How to Live a Short But Sweet Life. Ge. 5:28
2. the Comfort In the Curse Ge. 5:28
3. The Image of the Image Ge. 5:1-3
Chapter 6 Sermon Topics:
1. Causing God Pain. Ge. 6:1-6
2.Save yourself! Building An Ark through Faith in Christ Ge. 6:14
3. What To Do When God Gives You a Hard Job Ge. 6:20-22
How many sermon topics can you come up with as you read Genesis 5 and 6?
