To be a persuasive preacher requires developing a burden for both the people in the audience and the passage itself. The goal is to evoke not just emotions in people but a desire to act on the truth they hear. This can be done in many ways, but it is essential to engage the minds of those in the audience as well as their hearts. It is equally as important to establish credibility with the audience and show that you are worth listening to in the first place.
