The style and context in which you are speaking are two vital components to consider. How you present yourself and how you present the message, aside from the content, have a lot to do with the effectiveness of the message. In addition to this, if you are not using the context in which your congregation is currently in to add relevance to your messages, you are not maximizing your speaking ability. If you are spending time in prayer, God will give you content and he will speak to people through you. With that said, there are some practical steps that you can take in order to realize what you can do to deliver that message well.
Your style pertains to the way you carry yourself as you preach a message. This can relate to the way you use your hands, the way you change your voice during certain points, and anything along those lines. Your style also pertains to the way you directly present the content that you have prepared. Maybe you have a style of preaching that generally results in a louder volume, rather than a softer volume. You must be able to ask yourself questions that will allow you to understand the condition of the church, as well as your own personality. This will allow you to present your messages in a way that is effective for both you and your church.
The context in which you are preaching under is also a huge component as to how you should deliver your message. It is imperative that you understand how to identify what the context of your speaking environment is, and how that should apply to your message.
