Last Christmas I received a new NVI Bible (by request), since my old one was falling apart. It has lines in the margins for notes. My first notes, for a sermon, covered Rom 8.28-39. Quite a good place to start, don’t you think?

If a sermon has seven points, they have to be treated in a few minutes each. But if they all come out of a single verse of the Bible, that’s not such a bad thing.
