How to Write a Sermon. Anyone can write a sermon today. You don´t need to be a Bible expert. If you can follow instructions and have access to the Internet, sermon preparation can be as easy as one, two, three. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions on sermon preparation below.

Choose a biblical topic for the sermon. Keep your audience in mind. Select a topic that inspires you. You can´t inspire others if you're not inspired first.

Prepare an outline for the sermon based on your topic.


Visit the Bible on the Web website. (See Resources.) You don´t need to register. Review all sections.


Perform searches either by keywords or biblical scriptures, then press the appropriate button.


Write your sermon once you have found the biblical passages that back-up or reinforce your sermon topic. Be authoritative in tone.


Use real life experiences and examples to back-up biblical passages. Be as brief as possible.


Review your sermon several times before doing it in public. Sermon preparation is not difficult and can be very rewarding. The more sermons you write, the more you want to do.



  • Plan your sermon well ahead of time. Don´t wait until the last minute.
