Here are three resources which we enjoy, and wish to share with you.
The first is “Sermon Search,” which is a great resource for Pastors.
As their heading states, they offer “Sermons, Outlines, Illustrations, & Preaching Ideas.” There is some really great content here. We get email updates from them, and we also “look around” the site often.
We think you’ll find it a great resource.
They also feature a “Pastor’s Corner.”
Here’s a direct link:
Next, here is are 2 links to “9Marks” Ministry.
The first is a direct link to “Answers For Pastors,”
where you’ll find “Common questions from pastors arranged topically.”
Here’s the Direct Link:
ANSWERS FOR PASTORS
9Marks also features a section of their website called “Answers for Church Members,” which feature “Common questions from church members arranged topically.”

We’d like to share with you this 40 day, daily Bible study, from
Pastor Gregory Dickow, entitled “Fast From Wrong Thinking 40 Day Journey.” We have both been going through this daily journey of devotional/Bible study, and it is really powerful.
This is a free Bible study: You’ll just need to give your email address, and the devotional will be sent to you absolutely free of charge, one each day, for 40 consecutive days.
This Bible study is a daily reminder of God’s promises to us, and it uses a lot of Scripture to help you learn the concepts of how to free your mind from “Wrong Thinking.” We think you’ll be blessed, encouraged, and empowered by the truths you’ll learn as you go along, with a different step each day. We have enjoyed it, learned from it, and been blessed by it.
Again, this is being offered free. You will have to just go to Pastor Dickow’s website, leave your email address, and your “Journey” will begin the next day, with the first of 40 daily devotionals.
Be encouraged, and be blessed!

Now, in an unprecedented effort to reach the world with the message of the Gospel – and dangers facing today’s persecuted church…The Voice of the Martyrs is offering their feature-length animated movie, JESUS: He Lived Among Us.
This story of Jesus unfolds through the eyes of His last surviving disciple, John the Beloved. Banished to the Isle of Patmos, the Apostle John recounts the incredible and often dangerous story of what happened when Jesus lived among us!
