  • #084: The Goals of The Sermon [PODCAST]

    Welcome to The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.

    In this episode, I want to talk about the goals of the sermon. Every sermon should have goals the preacher seeks to reach. You should preach with purpose. These goals should shape how you prepare and proclaim the message.

    Here are seven goals every sermon should have…

    1. Instruction
    2. Faithful
    3. Engagement
    4. Clarity
    5. Demonstration
    6. Passion
    7. Worship



    What are the goals of your sermons? 


    “One God-called man armed with one God-sent message, committed to one God-prescribed method – preaching – is always sufficient for any situation.” – Steven J. Lawson
