Quick Tip – Special Book Features

quick_tips_fb

Have you ever opened a book in WORDsearch and seen the weird orange asterisk looking icon on the toolbar? If your book has that icon, you should be excited! This means that your book has special features. Commentaries and study Bibles are the most common books that include special features, but other books can have them as well. So always be on the lookout for that icon when opening a book.

Special features in WORDsearch is a catch-all term for groups of items that a reader might take particular interest in. Examples include maps, charts, timelines, and photographs.

Please note: The views & opinions expressed in any guest post featured on our site are those of the guest author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions & views of LifeWay Christian Resources.

Why are small groups important? In Hebrews 10:19-25 we are told to not forsake meeting together to exhort one another. Verses 24-25 specifically say, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (ESV) If all you do is go to church on Sunday and sit in a service you are not fully doing what we are being told to do here. How can you stir someone up to love and good works that you are not spending time with? The answer is you can’t.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $9.95, is Christ’s Words from the Cross by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Click here to download.

Now the prayer of Christ had a great spirituality of aim. You notice that nothing is sought for these people but that which concerns their souls, “Father, forgive them.” And I believe the church will do well when she recollects that she wrestles not with flesh and blood, nor with principalities and powers, but with spiritual wickedness, and that what she has to dispense is not the law and order by which magistrates may be upheld, or tyrannies pulled down, but the spiritual government by which hearts are conquered to Christ, and judgments are brought into subjection to His truth. I believe that the more the church of God strains after, before God, the forgiveness of sinners, and the more she seeks in her life-prayer to teach sinners what sin is, and what the blood of Christ is, and what the hell is that must follow if sin be not washed out, and what the heaven is which will be ensured to all those who are cleansed from sin, the more she keeps to this the better.
