Applicationally Speaking

“Successful, life changing application is launched from the text and flies under the radar screen to lodge itself in the response center of the listener, with a surprise sense of “So that’s  what it means.”  David Jackman

I think there is something worthwhile in this statement.  Dr. David Allen has been known to say that  “High Predictability produces low impact.”  While this is most often used  in a context of preaching  content and delivery, the same can be said for application.  If someone can see an application coming, they may be more likely to put up a shield to deflect how they need to apply the scripture to their lives.
