One question that often comes up is “When is my sermon ready to preach?” This question comes from many types of preachers. Some are those who allow the demands of ministry to overcome their need to preach an effective sermon. So this type of preacher is looking for the minimum.
Other preachers, however, make the opposite mistake, and never think the sermon is ready for preaching. They could study and prepare for 100 hours and still find something wrong with the sermon.They go into the pulpit timidly and without the confidence that should come from adequate preparation.
