Living Word

In the section Living Word we want to provide sermon outlines to help pastors in the preparation for their important and central task of preaching. We try to provide help in the exposition and the application of the text. We have 133 sermon outlines available at the moment! This week: John 15:1-8.

The Work of the Triune God

In his monumental work on the Holy Spirit, Abraham Kuyper offers a useful distinction between the particular works of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. He suggests that “in every work effected by Father, Son, and Holy Ghost in common, the power to bring forth proceeds from the Father; the power to arrange from the Son; the power to perfect from the Holy Spirit.” According to Kuyper, we should think of the Father as the Author of all things, of the Son as the Mediator of all things, and of the Spirit as the Perfecter of all things.

Children's Devotions

"You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise" (Deut. 6:7) This is the instruction to all parents to bring the Word of God to their children at all times. However, it is not always easy to bring the Word of God to younger children. In this section we want to help all parents, grandparents, pastors, and Sunday School teachers with this important task.


This section has articles specifically for youth. The Lord promised that the outpouring of his Spirit will affect even the youth in a wonderful way (Acts 2:17). Therefore, youth will also be interested to learn what it means to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.
