Do you take notes during your pastor’s sermons? I’m a note taker from way back. I not only stay focused; I save valuable teaching for future meditations. Pastors use varied methods in the delivery of their messages; the changing of methods is of little consequence as long as the message remains founded upon scripture.
I am a fan of three-point sermons…
If you take notes, jot down this scripture verse from a KJV, 1 Peter 5:10.
“But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect , stablish , strengthen , settle you (1 Peter 5:10 KJV).”
I’m flexible; I see a fourth point in the passage. I just might drop Stablish into second position and place Suffered in first place.
Keep pens and highlighters handy; take notes and hide God’s word in your heart. [Psalm 119:11]

Thanks for comments, I understand why you don’t write in your Bible among non-believers…
Wing His Words,
I like to take notes, especially easy when there are numbered points. When each point begins with the same letter, I’m more likely to remember them all, for some reason. I stopped using a highlighter in my Bible or marking notes along the margins when I learned that many nonChristian folks consider that irreverent behavior on Holy Scriptures. They don’t do it on the Koran, for example, so if I do it in my Bible, they think I don’t consider the Bible sacred. I bought another Bible to use when reading it with nonChristians. Thanks for the great verses in this post.
