  1. The contest asks me to identify the greatest life lesson I have learned.
    That is easy and immediate. Jesus is The Son of God and loved us enough to die on a cross for us that believers in Him might be finally and eternally reconciled with God the Father who deserves our loving, faithful obedience.

    • Chris Stump says

      I have learned not to attempt to mold God’s plans for my life into what I think God’s plans are for my life. Too often I have used my own desires, however noble they may be, as a substitute for where God is really leading me. It has been a tough lesson to learn, but sometimes God’s desire for my life does not align with my own.

    • God will always pick me up when I fall. It doesn’t matter how bad I mess up. He will always love me.

    • Bryan Horton says

      The greatest lesson I have learned and am still fighting to learn (present continual tense :) is to F.O.C.U.S. = Finding Only Christ Ultimately Satisfies.

  2. The greatest life lesson I’ve ever learned is to trust Christ with the course of my life even when it looks nothing like what I think it should.

  3. No matter what I always need the Gospel, preached to myself daily.

  4. Samuel Trevino says

    Logos 5 is a nice product.

  5. this sounds like an awesome opportunity. Thank you, Logos!

  6. Biggest life lesson? I am not in control, and it’s not my place to worry about the future.

  7. the one i’m still learning

  8. I have learned that the right application of the gospel ultimately solves all problems, but I don’t always rightly believe the gospel.

  9. Rick Ziesmer says

    God Is Faithful!!!

    • God isn’t just sovereign, though he is, but he is good. One without the other isn’t enough.

      • Brian,
        I think that you have said it perfectly. For me, anyhow…. Right now I am in a desert place where in I must keep my focus solely on the Lord or I would be too frightened by the circumstances that are far beyond my control. I know that God is sovereign but without being able to trust that He is also good, I would be without hope. I need to know that He cares that I am suffering terribly and that, in His perfect timing, will lift me from the pit. Others are watching to see what He will do for me so this is also a great moment of growth in the walk of many who surround my life. Thank you for putting into words feelings I had not yet sorted.

    • Rick Ziesmer says

      GOD IS FAITHFUL!!!!!!!

  10. Frédéric Paché says

    To my mind the spirit of the Gospel is not what you can do good for others but why you do it. Motive in your heart can be more important that the good work you do. And of course your motivation has to be driven by love. Otherwise your justice will not be better than the justice of pharisees.

  11. Greatest life lesson I have learned is that people will change but God remains constant, unchanging Truth.

  12. God’s character is never defined by the circumstances I am going through.

  13. Thanks for this offer may thy Lord Almighty continue to grant you all his Grace in Jesus name I pray.

  14. Greatest life lesson is that if Jesus rose from the dead, everything totally changes.

  15. Steve Slesinger says

    The word of God changes lives!

  16. You are never alone, for in your darkest hour God is still there to meet and comfort you.

  17. Carmen L Santiago says

    Always trust that God is in total control and whatever happens in your life is His good and perfect will.

  18. I drive truck for a living and don’t have a lot of space but enjoy
    Reading and learning to keep a close relationship to share with others

  19. No one and nothing is more important than our great and wonderful God!

  20. The greatest life lesson is this: The closer you draw to God and the closer you draw other men to God the more the enemy will use everything including your own against you and His mighty works of Grace. Prepare yourself and your family for the onslaught, rest in His hand, Trust in His love, share Him with passion and love and the rest will work itself out to His glory.

  21. Jeff Wright says

    Awesome giveaway! Thank you.

  22. I’m a bible college student, considering seminary.. this would be such great help!!! :D

  23. Richard Moffat says

    Grace is not only amazing but humbling!

  24. Elaine Davis says

    “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” I Thessalonians 5:24

  25. Bonnie Lemonds says

    The greatest life lesson I’ve learned is the sovereignty of God. Still learning what it means to accept and trust in His sovereignty daily!

  26. Adam Kawaguchi says

    That God prepares beforehand in wonderful ways before I am even aware

    • The greatest life lesson for me to learn was that I must let my will be intersected by God’s will daily. This forms my cross. “….then it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” Galatians 2:20

  27. My ultimate goal in life should be that I am unknown because Jesus is all that speaks when my mouth is open.

  28. A major life lesson I have learned is from my father, who always told me, “Plan your work, work your plan.” It’s a motto I try my best to live by.

  29. The greatest life lesson I have learned is to be obedient to the will of God in my life.

  30. The greatest lesson I have learned is that whether or not I am ever blessed in any way at all in this life, be it winning a contest or receiving the provisions for my daily needs, YHWH is God and I am not, and as Creator He deserves my honor, service, and worship simply because He is.

  31. Greatest lesson learned? Getting a grasp on who God IS — mighty, powerful, awesome, sovereign, just, holy, loving, perfect… The list goes on! He’s a great God.

  32. The greatest lesson I’ve ever learned is that because I do not deserve or earn God’s love, I can not expect others to deserve or earn my love. I am to love unconditionally even as I am loved unconditionally.

  33. Biggest (and perhaps toughest) life lesson? God will vindicate his goodness in the lives of his people.

  34. God’s strength is perfected in my weakness.

  35. The greatest lesson:
    Be a voice not an echo – Be who God called me to be not another – but rest in that He created me and wants me as I am for what He is calling me to do. Praise God for daily grace

  36. The greatest lesson I have ever learned is that I am a wretched sinner who deserves nothing but God’s condemnation and wrath, but He has chosen me and has paid my sin debt in full, forgiven all my sins, and adopted me as a son to receive an eternal inheritance.

    • Robert Paul says

      Work Willingly and Well With What you have!
      Journal and Write your Goals down!
      LOVE is the greatest commandment, and to LOVE “Others” is the second!

      My motto is “Others,” just like Christ’s Kingdom Mission. When I motivate my Christian Education students, children-teens-adults, and my college students, I’m truly preparing them to touch the lives of others, just as Christ touched me and so many “Others!”

      Rev. Robert Paul
      CE Pastor
      Adjunct Speech instructor
      Texas Licensed Insurance Agent

  37. Unfortunately, I have learned that God does not always work things out.

  38. Jesus is Lord!

  39. This is great count me in

  40. Greatest life lesson: Jesus really is everything.

  41. Rick Taillefer says

    The Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all worthy of worship because they all are God with all the same attributes and characteristics!

  42. Nathan Parker says

    Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him (Charles Stanley)

  43. Dave Hartman says


  44. Jonathan Greer says

    Greatest life lesson: my family is my first ministry.

  45. The greatest life lesson I’ve learned? Jesus is the life. Not the written word of God, but the living Word of God.

  46. God always gives us a choice. Choose HIM always

  47. Josh O'Donnell says

    I’ve learned to trust what Jesus says in Matt 6:25-34. As a Pastor, I’m often prone to worry about the things the Jesus has already promised to take care of. So I have been taught through the Holy Spirit to just keep seeking his kingdom and righteousness and let him carry the weight of everything else.

  48. Joel Forman says

    The greatest lesson I have learned in my life so far, besides there is a God and He loves all of us, would have to be this. Control is a lie that we pursue from the day we are born, and as a Christian we must continually give up to God each day. There is one thing we control, our responses to the people and the situations around us. Yet, I have chosen to give even this little bit of control to God. I have yet to fully succeed, but I grow closer to God each day because of it.

  49. I hope to use this for missions work, here’s for the windup before time to go…

  50. What is the greatest life lesson you have learned?
    By grace alone, through faith alone, on the basis of Christ’s work alone, to the glory of God alone.

  53. Nathan Rice says

    It is all about a personal relationship with Christ. Allowing Christ to live through you.

  54. Carl Fischer says

    Used logos for more than a decade. Really useful tool.

  55. I have learned that God is not moved by our need, but by our faith! If we want to please him we have to believe he wants to good for us!

    And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. (Hebrews 11:6 NLT)

    Missionary to Africa- Logos will be an awesome space saver!

  64. Dimitri Petrov says

    Sounds awesome.

  65. Doug Wesney says

  66. sign me up

  67. abedabun dawn says

    Over the yrs I have learned that all things will pass. and that counting to 10 when frustrated or upset is most always a good idea :)

  68. Bruce Irving says

    What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4.14

  69. God will never leave us

  70. Lesson I learned: The one thing that kids need most in a mom, is for them to see that you need Jesus.

  71. My family teaches me more than anything else.

  72. Anthony J. Artis says

    My greatest life lesson is realizing that I am nothing without the Lord. In and of my own ability, power, and talents, I cannot make it. However, with the Lord on my side, life is worth living to serve Him, to do His will, and to accomplish His purpose and plan for my life.

  73. One of the greatest life lessons I’ve learned is that a godly wife of noble character is not only my crown, but also the greatest gift that He has given to me outside of salvation.

  74. The greatest lesson I have learned is that taking personal responsibility is the first step in finding forgiveness and to be able to forgive others.

  75. My Greatest life lesson was to realize and accept that I can’t do it on my own. That when I put Christ first in every aspect of my life things run smoother, there may still be some bumps in the road but by leaning and depending on the Father and His Darling Son I can make it.

  76. All things works together for the good to those who love God

  77. Christ is sufficient. That’s the most important and life-changing lesson I’ve ever learned, full stop.

  78. Question:”What is the great life lesson you have learned?”
    That God asks us to step up and take risks to follow Him. That we need to trust that if He calls us to do something, even if we feel unprepared or unqualified, that His will is true & that He will help us through it.

  79. My greatest life lesson is a one that I am learning on a daily basis, is that I am not in control and that everyday is a gift from Christ, and learning to submit to His leadership.

  80. Joshua Jones says

    Life is not determined by what you want, but by the choices that you make.

  81. David Coleman says

    If you don’t get a yes from G-d, then don’t do it.

  82. Derek Singer says

    I really really want Logos 5! I love what it has to offer to those who are hungry to study God’s word. I’ve been hoping to get Logos 5 for a while now and just cannot afford it. I hope that i can start studying and being in awe of what God wants to teach me through his Word!

  83. Greatest life lesson I’ve learned probably would have to be enjoying every day God gives me, even if it involves strife, hardship, lack, pain, injustice, or frustrations. Life has taught me that you can’t always choose what happens to you day-to-day; good or bad, but to embrace them all the same in full knowledge that God’s hand is on your life and He will never allow you to be tested or tried beyond what you can handle (1 Cor. 10:13). We aren’t immune or filtered through life’s trials, but we are kept by a loving Father who upholds, protects, and sees us through to the green pasture.

  84. The Word of God is so precious to me-and my enjoyment, understanding of it, and ability to teach it to others has been greatly enhanced by Logos and modern technologies. Thank you! Preach the Word!

  85. Jacob Yeager says

    No matter what happens, God will see me through it. He began a good work in me, and He intends to and will finish it.

  86. The greatest life lesson that I have ever learned is to schedule life around breaks instead of breaks around life. This has revolutionized the way that I live my life!

  87. the greatest life lesson I have ever learned is to know that I am loved and know by such an awesome and amazing God!

  88. Life lesson the Gospel is Christ

  89. Gordon Sanders says

    Perseverance Pays

  90. Terry Henry says

    “In the beginning God…”

  91. The greatest lesson I’ve learned is to love perfectly as Christ demonstrated.

  92. It takes a long time to become a good hitter in baseball. Unlike many sports, very few baseball players go directly from college into the majors. If you get a hit three times out of ten plate appearances, you’re a very good hitter. If you can manage four out of ten, you’re an extraordinary hitter. That means a good hitter fails sixty to seventy percent of the time. It takes a long time to learn how to hit a curveball. It’s humbling to be a baseball player, and I think that’s why there isn’t a lot of chest thumping in this sport.
    One of the greatest life lessons I’ve learned is that Christian discipleship is much like learning how to hit. It takes a long, humbling time to follow Christ well, and every Christian must travel their own winding way. It’s wise for us to adopt a baseball manager’s long-term perspective in this process of discipleship. We should be patient and gracious with those who haven’t, from our perspective, “gotten it” yet. The truth of the matter is, there are probably a multitude of things you haven’t gotten, either. But you only know this when you’ve walked with Jesus for a while—long enough to know that, just when you thought you knew how to follow Him, you’re thrown a curveball that you just can’t hit.

  93. says

    I use Logos to dig deeper into scripture….love all the reference material.

  94. The greatest life lesson: Jesus Christ
    He is the only way to eternal life, forgiveness of sins and a fulfilling life.
    Jesus Christ

  95. Greatest life lesson? Admit mistakes and learn from them. Even if they were someone else’s mistakes. ESPECIALLY if they’re someone else’s mistakes. No need to repeat.

  96. There is nothing more exciting, joyful, or fulfilling we can pursue in life than to strive to understand God’s nature, magnify God’s glory, and expand His Kingdom. Live the Mission!!!

  97. William Anderson says

    The greatest lesson I have learned in life is that there is nothing I can do to make God love me more or make God love me less.

  98. Ben Peletier says

    The greatest lesson I ever learned is that I was made for eternity

  99. Jacob Laughlin says

    One of the biggest lessons of my life is that when you are in the will of God and pursuing what God has in store for you, then He will make it happen. I have seen him use so many people to make it happen.

  100. Jerry L. Smith says

    This will be a blessing for any student of the word of God.

  101. Doug Murphy says

    My greatest lesson is realizing I am broken and in need of help. Jesus is the answer

  102. Matt Galster says

    Such great authors and great software to make it so accessible. March on, Logos!

  103. Jesus and his place will make everything worth it

  104. Travis Dodd says

    This is pretty exciting!

  105. God’s love for me. Even though I don’t deserve anything good from Him He freely gives to me; grace, peace, love, forgiveness, the complete package, more than I can fathom!!!!

  106. John Fairchild says

    Looks like a great conference.

  107. Curtis Gordon says


  108. Michael Chapman says

    My Aim in Life is to be conformed into the image of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour.In light of the “all things that works together”.

  109. Valorie Horn says

    Greatest life lesson is to always, always pray first. Prayer gives one the opportunity to connect to the divine and acknowledged God as supreme ruler. Pray sets the tone and allows one to make the best decision. I choose to follow the words of Proverbs 3:5-6. Trusting and leaning on Good in every decision so He can give directions.

  110. Trust God in all things.

  111. Don’t let the uncertainty of future events distract you from the certainty of the present Gifts of God.

  112. Greatest life lesson: Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.

  113. I would love to win!

  114. God has never given up on me…so I never give up on others.

  115. Being a Christian in a non-Christian world is the most challenging citizenship I have ever find in the face of the earth. Not only swimming upstream against the cultures, but also practicing values that against the odds of the worlds. The keys lie within transformation given by God himself and humility to admit that we are weak.

    …Man is not the centre. God does not exist for the sake of man. Man does not exist for his own sake. “Thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”…~ C.S. Lewis

  116. The greatest lesson I have ever learned is one that Jesus is still teaching me: to rely completely on him and trust that he knows what he is doing. Even when I’m uneasy or nervous about what I feel like he is leading me to, he is still totally in control. It all goes back to Jesus being Lord. It means more than him saving us from hell, it means we submit to him as the head of our lives. Following Jesus is not always easy, but we are always under his Lordship and watchcare.

  117. Angel L Perez says

    Greatests and most simple life lesson: God is always in control. Period, end of statement.Amen.

  118. Sin never delivers on its promise to satisfy. Only Jesus can bring true, lasting satisfaction and joy. He is a great Savior!

  119. The greatest life lesson I have learned is to allow God to work in me instead of trying to do it all on my own.

  120. Jesus Christ is Lord!

  121. Kim Boyenger says

    I’d love to have an iPad for my daughters bday

  122. The greatest life lesson I have learned is fear God and obey His commandments.

  123. The greatest life lesson that I have ever learned is that salvation is not only a past event. It is ongoing. Simply believing in the existence of Jesus is not enough.

  124. Chris Quinto says

    Greatest life lesson I have learned….don’t settle for less than what God has for you.

  125. Believe the Bible before you believe what others say about it

  126. The greatest lesson I’ve learned in life is that there is absolutely nothing I have to do to add to God’s love for me and there is absolutely nothing I can do to break God’s love for me, because Jesus said “It is finished” and he meant it.

  127. How rich and deep is the salvation we have in Jesus Christ!

  128. Ken Stevens says

    it’s not for me it’s for His name sake

  129. God loved me before I was born and gave me the most precious gift through Jesus Christ.

  130. Never trust self

  131. God is always there waiting for you…find him!

  132. Greatest life lesson trust in the Lord, learn how to lean on him because his leadership is perfect.

  133. My greatest life lesson is simple but profound… God is in control. Sometimes I have to remind myself of this hourly.

  134. It’s all about Jesus – not me.

  135. That the God of the universe loves me personally

  136. more of god and less of me.

  137. i am a child of the one true King

  138. Greatest life lesson: But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” I’m a youth group director at my church. I love my teens, and needless to say, when someone else gets involved I can get a bit jealous. Especially when kids from my group prefer to confide or seek advice from other leaders instead of me. I mean I’m supposed to be your spiritual guide right, your “go to” guy for all things Jesus-like! However God has better plans, and while fasting one night He showed me that this was His youth group and not mine; that these are His teen and if He wants someone better prepared and in tune with what the teens were going through to minister them then that’s how it was to be. I just needed to do what God wanted me to do and to leave the rest in His capable hands!

  139. Fantastic!!!PTL (Praise the Lord!)!!!

  140. Patience, humility, and charity make life much more enjoyable.

  141. God has gifted us to do great things for his ministry. However, God does not “need us”. He invites us along on the journey. He doesn’t need “fishers of men” to get his “catch”. Everyday I learn more about what God does to show his love. For example, how he gives us the opportunity to serve in his ministry on earth.

  142. Joe Stoppelbein says

    There is no replacement for personal devotions with God.

    • Renee Stewart says

      To love as Jesus loved, by the power of the Holy Spirit. And when I have failed, to let myself be forgiven and begin again. I have learned that I fail more often than I succeed.

  143. Remember the Lord is the way, the truth, and the life, the only way to the God the Father!

  144. I would love to see the look on a friends face when I could present a new iPad to him for his loving investment in my life.

  145. Such an amazing opportunity for the winner!

  146. My greatest life lesson… gratitude. Not to work for salvation, but being humile, receiving the free gift of God. That’s making me happy, every day again. That’s giving me the right spiritual behaviour of gratitude. The road is cleared now to let God do all the good things He wants to do to me. My oversized ‘me’ is out of the way. So it is possible by now to be grateful, even if everyday life is not loughing with prosperity to me.

  147. my lessons of life is that i must have faith

  148. “You have to go wholeheartedly into anything in order to achieve anything worth having.” Frank Wright. I believe it is true for our faith in Christ even more, everything or nothing. One is either wholehaertedly a follower (disciple) of Christ or not at all.

  149. I learned not to let Jesus’ mission become my mission and forgetting that he is the one who sent me out….

  150. Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in God that is with you.

  151. I can’t abandon the authority of scripture or the rest will fall apart.

  152. William Peterson says

    For me, it is/was hard to accept grace when I was in the middle of rebellious sin and that God died once to take away those sins. I can stop asking over and over to forgive me for that same sin so long as I’m not engaged in it any longer. Oh, and finally, when I did accept that true loving grace, it really is a sweet sound.

  153. A comment from my driving instructor when I took a turning badly and ended up on the grass by the side of the road has proved invaluable:

    “How can you expect to get where you want to go, if you’re looking somewhere else?”

  154. The most important life lessons come after the test.

  155. I learned to trust God even when He takes the dearest from you in death. God is still faithful to His word and His character. He never leaves us alone. He is fully trustworthy.

  156. I’ve learned that God has a way of humbling you, and though it hurts, it is so worth it in the end! Pride goes before a fall, Lord get rid of my pride – may I glory in You alone!

  157. Matt Galster says

    What a great time to be a part of God’s church! So many tools to learn his Word, so many leaders and teachers to sharpen our practices to make us conform to His Image. May God help us to use all he has provided for his glory, and may we learn to enjoy Him as much as we learn to fear and obey Him.

  158. the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

  159. Creed Horine says

    Sometime the stove , she is hot.

  160. Creed Horine says

    Thank you

  161. We can’t control what someone else thinks of us, we can only control our actions and what we think of our self.

  162. One of the greatest lessons I have learned recently is that when God calls, he will guide the way. I am still learning to keep in step with Him, my nature is to rush ahead to the goal and attempt to bypass the processes and lessons that He planned along the way.

  163. Zachary Allen says

    I pray that I win….

  164. The greatest lesson I’ve learned is simply the gospel – I’m a sinner and Jesus came into the world to save sinners — no hope without Him.

  165. christine Burd says

    One of the greatest life lessons I have learned is that there are things I can’t control and I must put them in the hands of the Lord.. ask him for guidance and peace, and trust that He will take care of things.

  166. Most important lesson: I am justified by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

  167. My greatest life lesson was learned when from the preaching of the Word of God, I saw myself as a sinner without righteousness that could replace the work of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I had to place my complete faith and trust in Him and His finished work for my redemption. This changed everything in my life from my career choice to the person I married. I will forever be thankful for the fact He loved me before I ever loved Him!

  168. Javier Rodriguez says

    Nice oportunity to by bless by winnig Logos 5 and an ipod.

  169. Kyle McMIllan says

    Greatest Life Lesson – to love and forgive others with the same love and forgiveness whereby I’ve been loved and forgiven (by Jesus Christ!).

  170. Kyle Kwitowski says

    My greatest life lesson is from Ecclesiastes; which is that there is nothing better to do than to enjoy my work, enjoy my youth, and take great joy in God’s laws.

  171. I’ve learned that it’s about His glory and not about our name.

  172. Jonathan Majavie says

    The greatest life lesson Ive learned is that without Jesus life makes no sense.

  173. Cara Heilman says

    God is Good……All the time. Let go let God

  174. Kevin Albertsen says

    We need to pass the pop Quizzes (our trials) now, so we will be able to pass the Final Quiz when it comes

  175. The greatest lesson I have learned in my life is that not only do I need my Saviour Jesus Christ’s death for my sins but also His resurrection for my justification (Romans 4:25) and His continuous presence, prayer, grace and strength to help me to overcome my sinful nature (Romans 7:24-25) and all situations (Romans 8:37) as well as to bear good fruit for my God the Father’s glory (John 15:1-8).

  176. The lesson I learned so far: God’s plans are not always mine, but in the end you look back and see how his plans were good, although it is not always easy to accept the ways he leads you, when you are still in the midst of trouble and pain.

  177. Clinton Holley says

    God’s plans ((His Word) never fail to meet our every need.

  178. Jonathan Bennett says

    The greatest live lesson I have learned is that life goes on, and what we think is a big deal at one point in our life turns out to only be something small in view of eternity.

  179. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord
    Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope
    and a future.

    It’s been a year of decisions. God’s plans have me in a place I’d never thought I’d be. But it’s better than anything I could have imagined.

  180. The decisive act: “…for God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

  181. For e to be a Prince, there must be a King!My life must honor and reference the King of my life.

  182. David Grills says

    The greatest life lesson I have learned is to walk with God with open hands. This allows me to accept what He gives me, and release what He takes away.

  183. I’m a sinner saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Praise be to God!

  184. Be nothing but joyful! :)

  185. Let no one despise your youth! :)

  186. The greatest life lesson I’ve learned is that I am weak and He is strong. It was true when I was a child, and it is true today. Without Christ, I can do nothing. I have to be reminded of this lesson often, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

  187. I’ve got to depend on Christ for the big stuff and the small stuff.

  188. Greatest life lesson: GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL!

    Why such a simple answer?
    That truth changes the way I come to God in prayer, study, and worship.

    God told me thru the Bible that he will always answer my prayers, so I can pray with CONFIDENCE, and TRUST that his answer is the best one no matter what it is.

    God told me thru his living Scripture that the Holy Spirit has been sent to reveal the whole truth, and He did in the Bible, so I can be COURAGEOUS in teaching, knowing I have the COMPLETE TRUTH.

    God told me in the God-breathed Pages of the Bible, how the first Christians worshiped and glorified His name! Christians who remembered Christ, who were led by Jesus’ Apostles, when the Holy Spirit revealed Jesus’ truth to the Apostles and Disciples, their example of worship is the ONLY EXAMPLE God intended for me to follow, so I can come to WORSHIP with MY WHOLE HEART AND SOUL devoted!

  189. The greatest life lesson I’ve learned is that the Gospel is not just what get’s us started on our journey with God, but it is the thing that sustains us every step of the way.

  190. Sandra Draper says

    Greatest lesson is a combination of truths: God is Sovereign; and He allowed it to happen to me. Therefore, I must deal with it, and learn from it; and glorify God in the process.

  191. Although I didn’t see in the instructions to enter what I’m supposed to post, I’ll go along with everyone else. My greatest life lesson is that I am a wretched man, bent toward sin, who can do nothing righteous except through the power of the Holy Spirit in me and the righteousness that was imputed to me when Jesus died on the cross for my sins. As Jesus told the young leader, there is no one who is good except God.

  192. Hi all,

    My greatest life lesson? Maybe some things I learned in difficult times:
    Even the best of people can fail me, I know I can fail myself many times, but God’s Word never failed me!
    I learned to not put my trust in men anymore, not even in myself, but on the Lord Jesus and His Word only.

    While reading many Bible passages and applying the lessons and truths therein retrospectively to my past circumstances, I often concluded the following:
    Had I read and taken the Bible more seriously and more carefully sooner, then I would have made much different choices and probably wouldn’t have had so big troubles. But: Thank God for all the troubles that He used to bring me back to Him and to His Word alone!

    Many people (I did) tended to either follow our big leaders or try/desire to be some kind of leader, often even both…
    But: had I realized earlier that the Lord Jesus is the only mediator between God and men (not only in Gods Word, 1 Tim2:5, but in real practice in my life), I would have put my trust earlier in Him alone, instead of admiring, studying and following my big examples or leaders.

    The Lord Jesus permitted and used many troubles and difficult situations in my life to finally get my attention to Him and to His Word alone.
    Hope and pray that you too will be richly blessed by our Lord Jesus!

    Ok, maybe this all sounds quite evident for many of you. I was told these things quite often by good brothers, but still it took me a long lesson to start to grasp a little more the full implications of it. I’m still learning.

    Love and greetings,

  193. Janet Reeder says

    To love the Lord God with all my heart,soul and mind!

  194. Patricia Ann Kellner says

    Press on!

  195. People don’t care how much you know til they know how much you care.

  196. Kim Boyenger says

    We love our logos softtware! Bit it’s about 8 years old

  197. Christopher Warrington says

    The greatest life lesson I have learned is that it is not my life to live, but my life to live for God. Placing my life in His hands is safer and better than placing my life in my hands.

  198. Angel Rodriguez says

    What is the greatest life lesson you have learned?
    This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8. I could not have said it better myself than how it already is written in the bible.

  199. Trusting God, unconditionally.

  200. Shawn Rainey says

    The end all is to be like Christ! to bring glory to Him.

  201. The greatest life lesson that I have learned is that I need to fully rely on God’s sovereignty each and every day! I also need to put Him first above everything and everyone else in my life, that’s a lesson that I’m still learning! God is first, my husband second, my children third I come much much later.

  202. Curt Caveney says

    Thank you Logos!

  203. To follow my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

  204. The Lord gives and takes away, but in his sovereignty is working all things for the good of those who love him and are called according to his great plan.

  205. The good news is that Jesus dies not only to reconcile us to God, but also to reconcile us to one another.

  206. That it’s not about me, it’s about Christ. That despite any trials I may encounter, He loves me, has not forgotten me, and has great plans for me. My life belongs to Him, I am not supposed to be in control and through the years I’ve come to find great peace in knowing I don’t have to be.

  207. Greatest Life Lesson: Follow Jesus

  208. Mick Elliott says

    That when we are going through the refining fire of trials, God’s grace becomes sweeter.

  209. Rainier camara says

    Receiving Jesus Christ into my life, acknowledging Him as my Lord and Savior. That’s my greatest life lesson.

  210. Jesus died for me.

  211. aaron hudkins says

    always trust in gods plan

  212. My greatest life lesson has been to be patient with making decisions and to pray for guidance in decision making

  213. Nancy Matheson says

    God loves the people I love better, stronger, wiser and knows what they need to come to Him. And He will provide them what they need. It’s up to them to choose.

  214. Arthur L. Gibson says

    I am a member and one of the leader of small groups called Ministering Men 4 Christ or (M squared 4 C). We sponsor a men’s Revival every September open to churches in and around our area and we are letting the Holy Spirit lead us to do all we can for men to grow in their walk with Jesus Christ as husbands, fathers, single parents and boys growing up to be a real man for Christ. In short the leaders God wants us to be for the health of families and deciles for Christ. In The last three years since it’s inception, we have been blessed as men have grown towards being men God wants them to be! These tools would provide our leaders with the insight to be better leaders in God’s Army.

  215. Always believe in HIM. For he will always be there for you through thick and thin.

  216. He must increase and I must decrease.

  217. David Creger says

    Wow! What a blessing winning this would be!!

  218. Rick Taillefer says

    Jesus is The God. If you believe this it will alter your life course and your manner of living.

  219. My hope is found in Christ alone!!

  220. Sergey Tyutyunik says

    Me and my wife tried to have a baby for a long time. We were almost to the point to stop trying and start looking into adoption. However now my wife is pregnant and healthy with a healthy growing baby. For me a great lesson was to trust God and he has proven faithful. Because when we were trying we just bought a house and were remodeling. I was finishing up school. I just got a new job. Now the house is done, got my degree, and have settled nicely in my job. God new exactly when the perfect time was for my wife to get pregnant and to raise a baby. Praise God.

  221. That God is in control and always knows best, even when it doesn’t seem like it.

  222. I’ve been learning how fleeting life is, and that only the things we do for God and His kingdom really matter.

  223. I love being a chaplain and serving God’s people. I wash the feet of God’s people through actions which include love, respect, compassion, etc. James 2:18 “But someone will say, ‘You have faith, and I have works.’ Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

  224. Getting older and reflecting on “The” greatest life lesson is a hard one. I suppose I have learned that I continually re-learn great lessons, time and time again. Ain’t life grand?!?! Thank you Jesus, for your patience with me :)

  225. The greatest lesson in life I have learned is that my greatest satisfaction is found in Christ Jesus and the greater my satisfaction in him, the greater I will glorify him.

  226. God is worthy of my worship regardless of what he does or does not do in my life.

  227. I could really use an iPad mini and an upgrade to Logos 5 Gold.

  228. ELAINE KEITH says

    I would really love an iPad mini and Logos 5 Gold.

    I need the word of the Lord daily.

  229. Dean Hockenberry says

    My greatest life lesson is understanding my true identity in Christ and how I practically live that out each day.

  230. The greatest life lesson I have learned is to trust God.

  231. After decades of living, and scores of failures, I’ve finally come to the realization that – in everything – the most certain route to success and actual joy is to Do the Word. Surprise, surprise! Hearing it alone doesn’t cut it. Wanting to do it is only preparation. Pretending to do it is a shameful failure. Judging the Word is a pretentious and dangerous game… let the Word judge you! Talking about it doesn’t count unless you actually do it. Do the Word. In marriage, relationships, work, choices… you name it… the key to joy and success and life is to Do the Word.

  232. My life is ALL of grace.

  233. Charles Woolson says

    Prov 3:5-6

  234. It’s good to know that the Word of God is powerful in any format, even in software. Logos is a blessing to pastors and Bible teachers.

  235. Cynthia McDaniel says

    God has a wonderful Plan for humanity

  236. Joshua Slocum says

    Jesus Christ is my life and I must live for His glory!

  237. Richard Stanley says

    Jesus First, family second — I spent a long time chasing money and what the world calls success. Late in life I came to know the ultimate lesson, it is all about Jesus and our relation ship with Him. Then it is about family, our relationships and responsiblities to them.

  238. Trust in God. Simple as that.

  239. Knowing that my idea of what my life might look like is not at all what God made it to be. What an adventure in daily trust!

  240. Carlton Elder says

    My greatest life lesson was learning to follow Christ through the valley of the shadow of death.

  241. I am so happy Jesus loves me

  242. The greatest life lesson I have learned: you often become the demon you wish to slay.

  243. Assume the best motives in others.

  244. marty phillips says

    God is still in control

  245. marty phillips says

    God is still in control no matter how rough the seas are

  246. It’s not about me.

  247. Ask Questions. There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid mistakes that get made by people who don’t ask questions.

  248. I have learn that all I learn
    yesterday starts with today and today is your life choice for tomorrow.

  249. John Kayser says

    So many lessons but probably one of the most important: “Only that which proceed from the Father, and is done by the Spirit of God for the glory of God, will last for eternity.” Too many things we do FOR God, our ideas, our plans, our service, but the only things that last will be those which are initiated by, directed by, empowered by, and for the glory of God. “The Son can do nothing of Himself but what He sees the Father do…” “Without Me you can do nothing…”

  250. John Daniels says

    LOGOS has been instrumental in my college studies as well as my Sunday School lesson and sermon preparations.

  251. The greatest lesson that I have learned is that God gives you people because you need them…not because you want them; And sometimes, you only need those people for a little while.

  252. Ray Johnson says

    God is still in control and He is still teaching me. So much to learn and life is so short.

  253. Carmel Wright says

    Above all I have learned that what God cares about is my relationship with him – it’s not about what I do, but who I am.

  254. Deb Flentje says

    Is 43:1-4 God is with me always!

  255. F.A.I.T.H.- Forsaking ALL I Trust HIM. G.R.A.C.E.- GOD’S Riches At CHRIST’S Expense.

    I have learned that by abandoning the things of this world and staying focused on Jesus and what He has done for me, that the Holy Spirit will dwell, abide in and comfort me through any and all situations. As I continue to mature in faith and be obedient to His word, His grace consistently rains on me and my family. This keeps a smile on my face and a song in my heart……

  256. Christina Martin says

    I’ve learned that you can’t love doing something until you do it. Go to church if you want to learn to love church. Read the Bible if you want to love God’s word.

  257. Brian Mc Callum says

    Four bypasses and a near death experience later – I’ve learnt God works in miraculous ways. It led to my salvation. My lesson was not only life changing, it changed my eternity!

  258. My lesson the result of personal tragedy. God is still faithful in the hardest times, and this world is not my home!

  259. Jorge Vicente Azevedo says

    I’m pastor,In Brasil. And I need logos bible 5 gold, so much!!

  260. Michael Kowalski says

    God is with us always.

  261. I am learning that Christ is my satisfaction.

  262. That I am not the centre of the universe :)

  263. Stuart Robertson says

    I am learning that Christ loves redeemed sinners — not when/because they become “good”, but always. “Friend of sinners” — oh what a comfort.

  264. The best use of an ipad mini is Logos and reading Bible and Bible-related books.
    Glory To God!

  265. My most meaningful spiritual life lesson is one that applies universally, not just spiritually. It is simply this: If I am to take Christ seriously, I must become authentic in my relationship with Him. If I withhold from God my emotions, whether anger or joy, I am not able to relate to Him honestly and transparently. God is bigger than my anger or my confusion. He is greater than my frustration and disappointment. He can take it, even when I fear that He will not. Only by honestly facing my deep emotions and discussing them candidly, and sometimes graphically, with God, can I hear Him and understand who He is and grow in knowledge of and intimacy with Him. To do anything else is a lie and I cannot love those to whom I cannot he completely honest.

  266. Gary English says

    My greatest life lesson was being blessed with an understanding of what real love is. There is the love authored by our God and the authored false understanding of love as presented by man.

  267. Javier Rodriguez says

    Lo que los ministros de Dios estabamos esperando

  268. Tyler Lemen says

    Yay logos!

  269. The greatest lesson that I have learned is to follow.

  270. I’ve learned that “Deus Caritas Est!”:
    God Is Love! (As He demonstrated by his Incarnation and death for us. WOW.)

  271. Jordan Litchfield says

    Striving to rest in God, rather than striving in my own strength.

  272. Marc van Eijden says

    We all like to win the mini i-pad with Logos 5 gold, but it won’t get us to heaven… :-) At least the winner will be able to enjoy some of the riches of God’s Words and the Christian community. May the Content give more joy than the container!

  273. Will Craven says

    That God loves me all the time, in every place, and in every circumstance.

  274. When I keep my eyes on Jesus and trust Him, life seems much easier. When I take my eyes off Him, I sink into the waters of the world and life becomes more difficult.

  275. Beverly McBrayer says

    I have seen your software and it is great for Bible Study and research. I am a Precept Student and Leader, which is a lot of research and study. This would be a great help in that process. It is nice to see that this has become a great tool for a lot of people.

  276. Earnest Walls says

    God is God and I am not!

  277. Greatest Life Lesson? I cannot successfully navigate this life, or especially the next one, on my own. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. He died because of MY sins, and rose again because He is God. He will come again. Some believe this, most do not. All will one day stand before Him.

  278. Debbie Ainley says

    God loves me!! He REALLY loves me!! He walked me through 12 years of “sifting” and repeatedly reminded me I wasn’t going through it alone, He was right beside me. When the sifting was over, He called me into Post-Abortion Ministry and the Bible Study He introduced to me for this ministry was the same thing He took me through in those 12 years!! (I’m not post-abortive!!) Because of His great love for me and the patience He afforded me through those extremely hard years, I understand how much He cares for these women!! He is One amazing Abba!!!!

  279. That Christ will always be faithful and will never leave us or forsake us.

  280. John Fulper says

    The greatest life lesson I learned is that Jesus is God and Savior. Nothing else is even a close second.

  281. Joel Holth says

    To love the Lord, my God with all my heart, my soul, my mind and my strength. And to love my neighbor as myself.

  282. Greatest life lesson is that Jesus loves me! There is not one thing in this world that I can do without Him! He is the center of my life without Him where would I be! Thank You Lord Jesus for the Cross! Thank You God for giving Your only begotten Son to die for us! God is awesome!

  283. God is patient

  284. Charles Woolson says

    Well done.

  285. Katie Dixon says

    Greatest life lesson. God works through prayer, so pray, pray, pray about everything!

  286. Michael Kelly says

    One of the best lessons I have ever learned is that everything I do with every interaction I have will either lead someone towards Christ, or lead them away.

  287. The greatest lesson: God provided eternal life through His Son, in that He died in our place while we were totally opposed to Him. If He provided salvation, He can provide for every problem we have in life through the information contained in His Word.

  288. Trust in the Lord, with all your heart.

  289. Aaron Wetzel says

    I’ve learned that I am more sinful that I’ll ever know and that, through Christ, I am love deeper than I’ll ever know. And that as I believe this, my life is transformed.

  290. Michael Chapman says

    Life is short! The older we get the more realize that God is present in our lives. We only have to look, pray and follow his teachings daily. Logos has been that support of the teaching, studying and learning tool that I needed in my ministry.

  291. Rev Jan MacInnes says

    The greatest life lesson that I have learned is that living with Jesus is living in the fullness of God.
    Prayer takes time so pray always. Prayer works!

  292. Melvin Abundo says

    The life I now live I live by faith in the son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.

  293. Greatest lesson is that God loves me in spite of who I was as a fallen man. Grace cannot be fully explained.

  294. I need the gospel.

  295. Samuel Crane says

    I have learn’t that life is all about God, it doesn’t matter how hard I try or what I achieve, all of this is for nothing if first I don’t seek God.

  296. Samuel Crane says

    I have learnt that life is all about God, it doesn’t matter how hard I try or what I achieve, all of this is for nothing if first I don’t seek God.

  297. Kenneth Carter says

    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. To seek the LORD because of who He is, what He has done and what He has said is my starting point for discerning life’s steps.

  298. But this I say to you, walk in the spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
    Galatians 5:16

  299. That I am a great sinner in need of a great Savior (Jesus Christ!).

  300. I need people.

  301. The greatest life lesson I have learnt is that God’s will is always best. Some years ago I went through a bad time in my life and became disillusioned with church. I walked away from church life even though I knew it was going against what God wanted me to do. During that period I was conscious of being outside of God’s will and I also felt unsafe, as if living without protection in a dangerous place. I was very miserable throughout this time. Like the Prodigal Son, I later came back to my senses and repented, seeking to get back on track with my relationship with God and His purposes in my life. I experienced God’s wonderful grace as he fully revived and restored me. In response, I immediately got integrated back into church life and set about pursuing my destiny in God, and since then I have never looked back. I have devoted my time and energy in the study of God’s word, in prayer and deepening my relationship with Jesus. In doing so I have developed greater sensitivity to His direction in my life both in the long term and in daily life, learning to hear His inner voice more acutely in order to know his perfect guidance in making the right decisions in life. I have no desire to do anything outside of God’s will but wish to stick close to Him and not go off on a tangent doing my own thing. I have learnt it is the safest, most fulfilling, most joyful place to be, and more importantly, it is a walk of faith that pleases God. To paraphrase what Peter said to Jesus in John 6:68, ‘You are the source of eternal life, where else should we go?’

  302. Logos 5 is a great product for your life-time ministry.

  303. Chris Wheeler says

    No matter how much you accomplish, or how many accolades you receive, it is all by grace; without Him I can do nothing.

  304. Christopher May says

    Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He is Lord, and the only way to the Father.

  305. Jesus is the only way to receive eternal life

  306. Dane Solaris says

    The greatest life lesson I have ever learned was that to never sacrifice your family on the altar of ministry. Family is your first ministry.

  307. Greatest life lesson I learned is that I need the grace of Jesus everyday!

  308. David Piontek says

    Thank you.

  309. Ken Snellenberger says

    Live like there’s no tomorrow; plan as if tomorrows will never end.
