When providing an introduction for someone, there are guidelines to make an effective introduction – the introduction should:
- Succinctly summarize the material
- Explain why the topic is important
- Get the presentation off to a high note
- Make the speaker feel welcomed
The first eight verses of Mark provided an extraordinary introduction…to Jesus and to His ministry. This introduction should whet our appetite for the Gospel, to prepare us to welcome the Lord into our hearts—and into His world.
