Search Sermon for Venue

An itinerant Bible teacher recently told me he uses the new Sermon editor for his messages. He enjoys the power of creating his outline and handout in the same document, as well as, the security of backing up and synchronizing his files to various devices.

As an itinerant, however, he preaches the same sermon more than once and he wants to insure he doesn’t repeat a message in the same church! So his question is:

Can the Sermon documents be searched for the venue in which they were delivered?

Yes they can and here’s how:

  • Place the location of the delivered message, such as First Church, Second Church, etc., in the Venue box in the Sermon Info section of a Sermon document (A)

  • Click the Search icon in the upper left of the program
  • Select Basic as the search type (B)
  • Select Your Documents from the resources to search drop down list (C)
  • Place the text of a venue in the Find box with multiple words enclosed in double quotes such as First Church(D)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the search results (E)

Please note that the text in the body of the Sermon document is also being searched for your query. In other words, if you tell an illustration about First Church in the file, that will return as a hit even though the message may not have been preached at First Church.

  1. Morris,
    Thank you for sharing your logos Teaching

    Is there a way to search for passages where there is a between God’s Sovereign choice to save and man’s free will response with respect to salvation?

    For example consider Eph. 2:

    God’s Sovereign choice to save:
    4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; cit is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

    Man’s Free will response:
    10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
