    What are the biblical justifications for giving a sermon? not the sermon topic, but the sermon itself...

    Of course, the "pick a verse and rant for thirty minutes" sermons that pervade the churches of today do not qualify to be called sermons, period.

    In Christ,

    The verses given by Trotter and Joseph are good ones, but also read through the book of Acts and see how the Apostles so clearly preached the Word of God. They may not call it a "sermon", but essentially that is what it is...even their purpose statement in Acts 6:4 shows this..."and we will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word."
