Changing up the template as I've seen other people's homiletics and adopted some of their styles:

Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):

1. Jesus washes the disciples’ feet

Principle: Jesus’ work cleanses His people.

2. Jesus set an example for His disciples and revealed Scripture to be fulfilled

Principle: Jesus’ disciples follow His example and study the Scriptures.

3. Jesus testifies about betrayal and Judas goes into the night

Principle: Jesus’ betrayal by Judas was part of God’s plan to give salvation to the world.


Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure showing where you are in Scripture):

After washing the disciples’ feet, Jesus sends Judas to betray.


Aim (“To Cause My Audience To…” Know, See, etc.):

TCMATK Jesus came to earth to cleanse people from their sins and set an example of service for His disciples to follow.


Application (not yes or no question.  Meant to bring about life change):

1. How has Jesus’ work on the cross cleansed you?

2. In what way have you followed Jesus’ example as revealed in Scripture?

3. When have you experienced an unpleasant circumstance that proved to be part of God’s perfect plan for your life and how has this circumstance changed how you look for God’s activity around you?
