4 Simple Ways to Make Your Easter Service Awesome

Easter sun rays

Easter is a huge opportunity for your church. There are more people attending church than almost any other time of year. Your Easter sermon is arguably the most important sermon your church will hear all year. And people who almost never go to church and know little or nothing about the Bible will be sitting among your congregation.

You do this every year—so how do you keep it interesting?

You have to decide if things that worked well in the past are reusable. Can you recycle some Easter sermon ideas you used a few years ago? Did you nail the Easter stage design last year? Does your team have the perfect worship set for Easter?

Those are all things for your staff to prayerfully consider and prepare based on the needs and resources of your church.

If you’re looking to freshen up your Easter service this year, Proclaim Church Presentation Software has some free Easter media to help you with the details, so you can focus on what matters—whether you own Proclaim or not you can use our free media to create smooth transitions, set the tone for your service, and compliment your sermon.

Why the Questions Jesus Asked Were about More Than Answers

Jesus questions

Sometimes you have this question about the Bible, this burning desire to know. And you want to know what the whole thing has to say about that question. Ideally, you’d have a year to read through the whole of Scripture, marking it up and taking notes on every passage that spoke to your question.

And I say, don’t give up that ideal. Go for it. But reserve that method for only the most important questions. For others, use the search tools in Logos to “read” all of Scripture for you.

James, Saint James: Theological Provocateur

James_1_22-3840x2160

The Epistle of James is one of the most practical books in the Bible. The exhortations within the letter encourage believers to put what they have learned in Christ into action. For James, knowledge and wisdom are not the end goal, but rather a means to an end. His desire is to see believers living out their faith, filled with grace and Godly wisdom.

James’ appeal is just as important as ever for students of Scripture. It’s not enough to simply study the Word of God if it doesn’t have any impact on your daily life. But deep analysis and relevant application are so hard to find in one resource. Enter the High Definition Commentary.

How to Do Bible Word Studies: A Fool-Proof Guide

Word studies are a treasure trove . . . and a mine field. Somehow you have to weave through the dangers to get the treasures. Think for a moment: if you were about to enter such a field, what would you want to know about first? The gold or the bombs?

I’d want to know about the treasures first: do they make it worthwhile to even bother learning about the dangers? And then I’d want a detailed accounting of the dangers—so I can live to enjoy the good stuff.

22 Christian Stories Your Pastor Never Told You

Take flight

Over the course of 2,000 years, Christianity has spread to every corner of the world. According to the Pew Research Center, there are 2.4 billion Christians in the world, a staggering 33% of the entire world population—and that’s just today. That figure doesn’t account for the billions of others who have followed Christ over the last 20 centuries.

The lives of the billions of people who have followed Christ throughout history together form the Christian story. Many chapters from that story we’ve heard time and again—Martin Luther and his 95 theses; Athanasius’ fight for doctrinal purity; John Wesley’s prolific ministry. But thousands of fascinating tales are just waiting to be celebrated and explored.
