Preach the Word!


Why do pastors preach sermons every Sunday?

The word pastor means shepherd, and pastors are commanded “to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood” (Acts 20:28) by feeding God’s people with God’s Word through reading and teaching from the Bible.

St. Paul wrote in a letter to Timothy, who was a pastor of God’s people: “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching” (2 Timothy 4:1-2).

And, before Jesus ascended into heaven, He commanded His disciples to teach His followers all the things He taught and commanded (Matthew 28:20).

That’s why pastors preach and teach from the Bible every Sunday.
