When I began doing the chapter charts exercise back in 1987, I didn’t realize it would be a method that followed me over the course of 20 + years of ministry.
The thought behind the charts is to spend time brainstorming. It expands your mind to look at Scripture in new ways. Let me encourage you to give it a try. Not all your ideas have to be keepers they are just ideas…and some ideas take you places you never even dreamed!
The exercise: break down the chapters in question and find at least three sermon topics or titles per chapter.
Genesis chapter 11 sermon topics/titles:
1. Refusal to change leads to confusion. Ge. 11:1-6
2. The Holy Spirit sovereign over language: Ge. 11:5-6/ Acts 2: 1-3
3. Why God scatters. Ge 11:8,9
Genesis chapter 12 sermon topics/ titles:
1. The blessings of obedience: Ge. 12:1-4
2. What to do with a promise of God Ge. 12:6-9
3. A character study on a successful liar. Ge. 12:10-20
Now you try! Go on! You might even find some exciting ideas for your future posts 🙂
