In the same scripture that indicates the frequency of partaking of the Lord’s Supper, we also find that preaching was going on in the assembly, “Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight” (Acts 20:7)
Although the length of the sermon is not of importance, the content of the sermon is of utmost importance as indicated by the instructions given to preachers.
Timothy was told, “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching” (2 Timothy 4:2).
When a preacher preaches the word, he must make sure he declares “the whole counsel of God” and not the counsel of men’s traditions and opinions (Matthew 15:9).
A preacher has no authority to preach anything but the word of God.
Does the church where you attend believe that a preacher can only preach and teach the word of God or does he preach and teach the traditions of a denomination?
