An Underlying Theme of Redemption

I do not believe that we have to make a choice between the critical and the devotional study of the Gospels, but that the critical should be pursued devotionally, and the devotional, critically.– Scroggie

Saturday’s Roundup

roundup

Can’t believe it is October already? Neither can we! Here at WORDsearch we hope that you had a great first few days of fall, and that if you live somewhere hot like we do you got some cooler temperatures. Here is what you might have missed this week in case you were too busy outside enjoying the weather.

Full-Color Photography, Illustrations, Charts, Maps, and Timelines Galore!

This week, we were able to offer the Barbour Bundle, a combination of excellent scholarship that’s illustrated with beautiful graphic references, at our best price ever. The graphics in this bundle beautifully and appropriately reinforce the text of each work, really bringing the Bible to life. You’ll find classic paintings from the great masters of art, plus up-to-date images from current artists, illustrators, and photographers. Watch a demo video and learn more about it here.

5 Stories of Encouragement, Plus Free Friday

Encouragement is a powerful force because it is a form of hope, one of the three things we know will always remain (1 Cor. 13:13). Every man, woman, and child stands in constant need of encouragement. Offering encouragement to others is easy to do, costs us nothing, and delivers kindness, love, and energy to the weary and downcast.

Today is The National Day of Encouragement, “a day dedicated to uplifting those around us and making a positive impact, no matter the magnitude.” To encourage you, we want to share a few personal stories of encouragement. We hope this inspires you in your walk with others. And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about Free Friday! You can download today’s free book at the end of this post.

Weekly Devotional – Cultivating a Faithful Relationship

No matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, it’s always good to go back to what some might call the basics.

Pick up the Holy Bible, no matter how you are feeling at the moment. Before reading it, pray for guidance, understanding and wisdom. If you don’t already have a personal Bible study plan, open the Bible and turn to the page wherever the Holy Spirit leads you. You can’t go wrong because “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

A Look Into the Spring Training Conference

For everyone at the training conference held last week in Nashville, the time was full of fun, fellowship and learning. Trainers Scott, Rick and Steve spent both Tuesday and Wednesday teaching all the different ways to use WORDsearch in order to save time and deepen the study of God’s Word. This included how to use the in-depth search feature, how to create different desktops, the morphology tool and much more. At several points in the advanced training, the attendees clapped and cheered in appreciation of what they were learning about the program. If you weren’t able to make it (or even if you did!) here’s a look into what the conference looked like. We hope to see you next time!

“How I Use WORDsearch” – Customer Testimonial

guest_post_med

My name is Eddie Baker, and I am a 61-year-old truck driver. I never did well in school, reading and studying was not easy for me. At 37 God changed my life and my desire, and also my ability to study. I did my best to be faithful to the call to read and study the Bible. But as in earlier years, study was still difficult. One day a thought came to me that a computer would help me with my poor spelling, studying and searching skills. I got a laptop and began to learn how to use it.
