1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5
THIS BRIEF VERSE DEFINES BIBLICAL MINISTRY IN ONE CENTRAL COMMAND….. Preach the Word.
Along with that you could add 1 Timothy 3: where pastors and overseers and elders are to be didaktidos in the Greek, skilled in teaching and preaching. We are to preach the Word skillfully. That is our calling. And this verse is definitive as few others of that calling because it speaks so concisely and precisely…. PREACH THE WORD and “Apt to teach.” Vs 2 (2 Timothy 2:24 cf)
JESUS SAID in Matthew 4:4 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. If every word of God is true an every word of God is pure as Scripture says and every word of God is food, then ever word of God is to be proclaimed.

This is called Biblical Exposition. And since 1983 I have followed this pattern to the best of my ability.
Hand printing each manuscript sermon took a lot of time. When you print so you can read the material, that in itself took a lot of time. Not to mention the time to study the material
Is it the right method to preach and teach? I believe so. I enjoy study of the Word.
