The Success of a Sermon

What makes a sermon a success? The measure of any man’s sermon is made evident by the impact upon the hearer’s spirit. If the spirit is driven to respond appropriately to the nature of God and conformity to God’s standards then we can judge the sermon to be successful.

Gregg Metcalf (1955-)

I think it all depends who's giving the sermon.

Happy birthday to your daughter,

Yvonne - I think many people would say the same thing. However, that is opposite of my I think. The onus should be on the message not the messenger.
