  • #096: Evaluating Your Sermons [PODCAST]

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

    So, how did it go this Sunday? 

    This is the instinctive question preachers ask one another on the other side of Sunday. Answers may address church attendance, the offering, and service elements. But it eventually gets down to the sermon. How did the sermon go? We are prone to get this self-evaluation of our sermons wrong. We think it went better than it actually did. Or we think it went worse than it actually did.

    Here are five objective but spiritual principles for evaluating your sermons…

    1. A Faithful Exposition
    2. A Prepared Message
    3. A Christ-Centered Focus
    4. A Pastoral Concern
    5. A Consecrated Heart
    6. A Trusting Abandonment


    What principles or practices do you use to evaluate your sermons?
