In a previous blog I showed how to search our Sermon Editor documents by venue. In this blog we’ll focus on searching them by topic and biblical reference.

For example, Ephesians 3:14-19 is one of my favorites in which Paul prays that Christ will dwell in the hearts of Christians. We’ll save the study of dwell for another day. Today, however, […]

In today’s blog I’ll show how to execute a […]
