The first stage of sermon preparation is selecting a text, or a passage of scripture, to preach from. As simple as it may sound, this is what many preachers often get hung up on. This chapter aims at providing helpful principles including what part of the Bible to preach next, and the length of the passage to preach from.
Once you have selected a passage of scripture to preach from, the next step is to understand the text. There are several tools you may use to help you understand a portion of scripture, including: study Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, as well as various Bible translations.
