Is good preaching within the cell group important?

Preaching within a cell group is very important. Being a preacher of the gospel is one of the greatest privileges that anyone in this world can have.

Being chosen to preach is equivalent to being chosen by God to represent him before the people. Every teaching that we share, according to the degree of responsibility we have, becomes spiritual food for others.
The preaching of the Word in a cell group is much more than just sharing a message. It is being a channel where the river of life can flow through God’s message. God is very careful that His river only flows through clean and holy people. For this reason, God has to sanctify the life of the one who is sharing the message.
The preacher must begin with the preparation of his teaching on a spiritual level. The following aspects will help you to prepare a message according to God’s purpose:

1. Get into the habit of constantly studying God’s Word, dividing it by bible books, chapters, and verses.

2. Always prepare a message thinking about applying it to your own life.

3. Memorize all the texts because this helps you to share the message with authority before the public.

4. Use the dictionary to accurately learn some terms and their synonyms of words you are going to use during the preaching.

Outline the preaching according to the following items:
