Happy Saturday everyone! Thank you so much for the work you do for the kingdom. It seems we hear of great tragedy in the news every day. It’s a reminder of how desperate the world is for a Savior, and all those who are suffering need our prayers. We hope you know how much we appreciate you.

We have all been there. You are reading a fascinating book or article with several biblical references. You are torn between looking up each verse and just trusting the author. A few years ago I fell under conviction that if I did not look up the text I was lifting the opinions of men above the Word of God. (That may not be a real problem but I was raised legalistically, so I find random sins all over the place where there really are not any.)

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”  – Philippians 2:4

This morning while driving to work, cruising along, the traffic seemed heavier than normal for 5:15 a.m. Looking in my rear view mirror, I saw the pretty orange lights of a big rig truck. The poor guy was trying to maneuver through the morning commute, cars full of folks that I am confident had not yet been caffeinated to complete awareness of their surroundings. Like that of a chess game, I figured “If I move over one lane, move forward around this little white car, and return to my original lane, I could make room for the big truck to get around.” Off I went, and NOT going over the speed limit I might add. Doing so, the truck driver saw the move and made his own advance. As we continued on down the freeway for a few minutes, just as I began my exit off, the truck driver passed on by, but NOT without a reaching out of his hand and the wave of thanks.

We hope you had a Merry Christmas this week and enjoyed time with family. Here in Austin, the weather wasn’t exactly what you would think of when you imagine Christmas (aka in the 60s), but hey, that is why most of us live here. We know how busy this time is, so here’s everything you might have missed at WORDsearch this week.

Quick Tip – Verse List Window

quick_tips_fb

The Verse List window creates verse-based outlines. With it, you can create topical studies, lessons, or even sermon outlines. You can organize verses by including named section headings. Sections can be expanded or collapsed. When a section is collapsed, you see only the section heading, not the verses for that section. Verses do not have to be in Bible order. You can attach notes to any section heading or verse.
