Sermon Application Grid

I use this grid on a regular basis. I commend it to you. – Chap

The application grid is a helpful tool from 9Marks that can serve pastors preparing sermons, as well as all of us when reading biblical texts. The grid has you examine how the main point of a passage applies to six areas:

  1. Unique salvation-historical. Does the main point address a text that thrusts forward the unfolding plot of redemption in history?
  2. Individual Non-Christian. Does the main point have implications for the unbeliever’s thinking, behavior, or motivations?
  3. Public. Does the main point have implications for how we conduct ourselves in the public squares of commerce, politics, justice, etc . . . ?
  4. Christological. Does the main point have implications for how we think about Christ Himself?
  5. Individual Christian. Does the main point have implications for my own persona discipleship to Christ?
  6. Local church. Does the main point have implications for how we conduct ourselves as an assembled congregation or in our corporate life together?
