Spurgeon once wrote that "where the application begins, there the sermon begins." Since the application is so important, it will be the primary purpose of this thesis to offer suggestions to the preacher on how he may improve and develop his ability in constructing the practical application of his sermon. The paper shall not be limited to mere suggestions, however; we shall discuss and make a study of the subject from all important angles (such as: the nature of the application, the necessity of the application, the purpose of the application, etc.). Writing on a subject of this type is not like making a report on some historical topic. Authority in such a paper as this demands the wisdom of an experienced pastor. The author is as yet not a pastor, and hence he must take advantage of the experience of others; he will be forced to use frequent quotations, In order to prove his points.
