At any one time in a gathering there will be Christians and non-Christians present. This presents the preacher with a challenge. Does he primarily focus on preaching to the Christians to edify and build them up or does he focus on evangelising the enquirers. Either way, he risks leaving part of the audience behind. Or does he? One helpful way of approaching the sermon is to preach at one type of listener but with the expectation that the others present will in effect be able to overhear and by analogy apply the sermon to themselves. So if my main application is for Christians, the non-Christian should be able to trace the Gospel through what I say. Likewise, there should be something for even mature believers in an evangelistic talk. So, if I’m the believer in the congregation, how should I listen to an evangelistic sermon?
