A preacher own throughtsis a reflections in his preaching, and he must shine his own star rather than someone else's sun. He needs to read plenty of books and the Bible to get a sermon. He must write down thoughts that have come to him from time to time over a period of time.How a preacher build a sermon is by the way he arrange the material. A good arrangement is necessary for a good following on the part of the audience.

In the beginning a preacher must be himself and gather his own thoughts. He should pray ,study the Bible and read lots of books on all accounts to get his sermons.He can gather all the material that he has seen and heard to use in his sermons. Preachers are like architects,by strutting their material into a sermon and having a theme in his sermon.

There must be a systematized program applied to the preparation of preaching. It's so much more than the gathering of facts but the melding together of facts for proper presentation. Without the systematic approach it's nothing more that brilliant rhetoric being tossed about in a church setting.

Preachers should be well read but not only well read but well equipped. In that while the preacher must be well read he must well-versed scripturally. The preacher must keep all things in context of the text, keeping in mind that the rule of context is CONTEXT RULES. This keeps the preacher from just standing and sharing random things that have no connection to the text that he has chosen to preach.
