Good Service Last Night

The first night of the meeting at New Buffalo Baptist Church is Grover, NC went very well. The church is an excited, vibrant congregation of redeemed people who love the Lord Jesus Christ. Their Pastor, Brother Adam Green is exuberant and charismatic (No not that kind!). He has an infectious passion for the Lord and for the church. To say the least, it was an exciting evening. The capstone of the service came at the end when a woman, probably around the age of 70, was gloriously saved by the grace of God. Hallelujah! Please keep praying for the rest of the meeting. I am looking for the Lord to do great things among us this week.

The Sermon Notebook Released As A Wordsearch Module

The Sermon Notebook has been published by Wordseach as an add on module for both Wordsearch and Quickverse Bible study software packages. This project has been in the works for about two years. My contact at Wordsearch, brother Mike Cooper, and his team have worked very hard to format and index my sermons and to make them available to Wordsearch and Quickverse users who would like to utilize those sermons as part of their Bible study and sermon preparation workflow.

If you would like to read more about The Sermon Notebook on Wordsearch and Quickverse, or if you would like to order a copy for your own use, here is the link to the product information page. The folk at Wordsearch have also produced a video that describes the The Sermon Notebook module and shows it in action. Take a moment to check it out.

I am grateful to the team at Wordsearch, which is a division of Lifeway, for their interest in making The Sermon Notebook available in this new format. Thank you to all the regular users of The Sermon Notebook over these past 16 years. The web site has enjoyed more success than I ever imagined, and I thank the Lord for that. I am looking forward to seeing how the Lord will continue to use the web site in the future. Pray for us and for the ministry here.

If you are not a Wordsearch or Quickverse user, please take the time to look at all the exciting Bible study products they offer. The people at Wordsearch have a heart for preachers and others who regularly study the Bible and share the fruits of their study with others. They are continually searching for, and developing new content designed to aid preachers and teachers of the Word of God in their respective ministries to the body of Christ.

Those who visit The Sermon Notebook on a regular basis should know all of our content will continue to remain here at sermonnotebook.org. The software being released by Wordsearch is designed to simplify and facilitate your ability to utilize the sermons on The Sermon Notebook through the Wordsearch interface. The product sold by Wordsearch is not the same as the DVD or flash drive I make available here. In other words, what I make available will not work with Wordsearch. Check out the video above for more information.

Thanks again for your prayers and support over all these years. God bless!

Glorious Service Last Night

We started our meeting at Pleasant Hill Baptist in Conway, SC. The Lord showed up in a powerful way. I preached from 2 Samuel 9 about the grace of God in salvation, using the story of David and Mephibosheth as the canvas. The Lord honored His Word. It was such a blessing to be in a service where the power of God was in such evidence. Please pray for the rest of the meeting. When you begin on such a high note, sometimes it is hard to get there again. Of course, that is in the Lord’s hand and I trust He will continue to meet with us as we seek Him for revival.

Let’s Try This Again

I’ve been away from the blog for a long time. My absence was intentional. For some reason, I seemed to have lost my passion for writing blog posts. I think I would like to try it again.

I am preaching this week, actually last night and tonight at White Plains First Baptist Church just outside of Anniston, AL. The Pastor is Brother Eric Snider. White Plains is a church God has blessed. They have experienced phenomenal growth over the past several years. There is a good spirit there, and it is easy to worship and preach at White Plains Baptist. Their Pastor is a tremendous preacher, and the Lord has honored his years of faithful ministry to this church. If you ever preach there, beware! They know their Bibles! That is a such a rare treat in these days of rampant biblical illiteracy.

We had a great service last night. A few hundred people came out to worship, and the Lord greatly helped us. I bless His name for that. Please pray for the service tonight.

Next week, March 7-9, Living Waters Baptist Church in LaGrange, GA will host a Bible conference. Many great preachers will be preaching in the meeting, along with one not so great preacher, yours truly. This is a good meeting. If you are in the area, please drop by for worship. The Pastor if Brother Richard Clinard. Brother Richard is a true man of God, and a powerful preacher in his own right.

Hope someone still stops by these parts. I will be posting some thoughts related to the iPad and about some of the apps I find helpful.

God bless!
