What is a sermon? What is its purpose? What should characterize it? How do you know if your pastor is faithfully doing his job? Not every verbal presentation which comes from the pulpit qualifies as a sermon. As a church-goer, it is vitally important that you know what your pastor should be doing from the pulpit each Sunday and that you hold him accountable. Thanks to the folks at Southern Seminary for producing this video on this very topic. Make sure your pastor is faithfully aiming for this each Sunday.
