Praise the Lord brothers and sisters of the most high God. Let me tell you quite frankly when I was asked to give my testimony about how WORDsearch software products help me in my sermon preparation I was stunned and honored and did not feel worthy. Nevertheless to God be the glory. From the very beginning of my Christian journey I knew I would become a pastor and was unsure of where I would get my training. WORDsearch Bible software changed that for me.
While serving in the United States Air Force, a fellow serviceman introduced me to WORDsearch Bible software. He told me if I studied the information that I found, it would be equivalent to going to seminary school. I began by purchasing the Bible Knowledge software first and then quickly moved up to WORDsearch 7. When I purchased the Bible Knowledge, I received quite a few books and had what I thought was an extensive library that I used every time I had an opportunity to preach God’s word. A fellow preacher told me about the Preacher’s Outline and Sermon Bible Commentary and a whole new world of sermon preparation and understanding opened up to me. Since then, I have taken the free training that is offered weekly by WORDsearch instructor Steven Ward. It had been about three years since I had purchased any new books for my library but through Steven’s training, I have learned how to use WORDsearch more effectively. I now know how to prepare expository, topical and biographical sermons, as well as how to navigate the software more effectively through note taking desktop building. My study time begins with prayer, then I navigate through WORDsearch and end it all with another prayer. Last but not least, I enjoy the ability to have my library downloaded on my iPad so I don’t have to keep my laptop with me to study WORDsearch wherever I go.
The day God allowed me to learn of WORDsearch was the day He started me on a theological journey that I will forever be grateful to Him. I am also grateful for the inspiration He gave to the WORDsearch family to develop this product.
2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
WORDsearch family: Don’t ever be ashamed because everyone who uses your software will without a doubt be able to rightly divide the word of truth.
