Question: How do pastors pick a sermon text and prepare the sermon?

Paul told the elders in Ephesus, “I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.” (Acts 20:27)...the Christian Church has long ago compiled a list of weekly readings that can be used for worship services and that ensure that all the truths of the Bible are touched upon throughout the year.  As a general rule, though free to make adjustments at times, our pastors follow those selections when choosing the Scripture readings and the sermon texts week by week.  That’s why you may have heard a relative or friend, even from a congregation of another denomination, say to you, “We had a sermon on that same text as you did last week.”
