The Pastorum Series offers pastors two types of resources: sourcebooks and sermon helps.

The sourcebooks, 300 Quotations for Preachers and 400 Prayers for Preachers, make it easy for you to find an appropriate prayer or quotation to use during a service or for any number of other occasions. Here’s a look at what you’ll find in the Quotations volume. The Prayers volume is organized in the same way.

“Jesus Is Our Divinest Symbol”

The sermon helps, the Study, Apply, Share series, empower you to jumpstart your sermon- and worship-planning process. They go through a biblical book passage by passage, prompting you with questions to dig deeper into the text and helping you make the most of your Logos library through links to relevant discussions. Application points, worship service ideas, and professionally designed slides make it easy for you to share information on words and themes in that book. Let’s take a look at the Study and Apply sections of Luke 5:12–16:

Preaching Theme: God’s Mercy

Leprosy was a painful disease that rendered a person ceremonially unclean. Jesus’ compassion led Him to touch this leper and heal him, restoring his health as well as his status in the community. Do you see others’ pain? May God open our eyes to see when others are hurting, and let us put our compassion into action by helping them.

Preaching Theme: Jesus’ Miracles

The leper showed that he trusted in Jesus by falling on his face before Him. He acknowledged Jesus’ ability to make him clean and Jesus’ right to exercise that ability. Sometimes Christians wrongly assume that God only worked miracles during biblical times. Do you believe that God still performs miracles? Let us follow the leper’s example by approaching the Lord and saying, “If you are willing, you can.”
