Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before You Write Your Next Sermon

Preaching, TheologyBy Dr. Frank Damazio

Preachers, here are some questions that you should ask yourself before you write your next sermon.

  1. What value do you place on the importance of theology in your preaching?
  2. What influences impact you and how can you maintain accurate theology in light of these influences and biases?
  3. What are some areas in which our culture shapes your thinking and how do you stand on biblical principles in those areas?
  4. Who has influenced your systematic theology? If you do not have a well-developed systematic theology, how can you improve that?
  5. What are your theological beliefs and boundary lines?
  6. How would you describe sound doctrine and what does it look like in your preaching?
