Free Christian Resources
a Little "Lagniappe"

Being in ministry, creative free Christian resources are something we are always keeping our eyes open for.  And being from Louisiana, we have decided to call these findings - "lagniappe."

Webster's dictionary defines "lagniappe" as:  a small gift presented by a store owner to a customer with the customer's purchase or an extra or unexpected gift or benefit.  Doesn't that just sound like a bit of GRACE?!

Working on this website has been so much fun! Along the way I am finding little bonuses and wanted to create a page to share these free Christian resources with you.

Bible Online Sites

One of our favorite free online Bible resources is the BLUE LETTER BIBLE.  Here are four benefits to their design given on their site:

  • BIBLE-CENTERED: We view the Bible as central to our study resources. We intentionally designed the website to include study tools that are linked directly to Bible passages.

  • POWERFUL STUDY TOOLS: Dig deep into the Word using commentaries, encyclopedias, maps/images and much more. One of our most used tools is the Lexicon search, which gives users immediate access to the original Hebrew and Greek words.

  • QUICK AND EASY SEARCH FUNCTION: In one spot, you can search Scripture by word, verse or multiple verses.

  • PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE: Use some features more than others? Create a customized homepage and sidebar to include exactly what study tools you want.

Lifeway Publishers also offers an index to free sermon outlines from various pastors which are arranged according to the Books of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

Free movie clips with discussion guides:

Are you needing sermon illustrations or Bible study illustrations? How about using movie clips? Here is a site that provides free movie clips that inspire and illustrate. They are organized so that you can search by movie title or Bible theme. 

WingClips gives the following reasons for using their movie clips to "spice up" your Bible study lessons:

"Simply, to better communicate with your audience. For better or worse, movies form a lasting impression on our hearts and minds. Studies suggest that three days after an event, people retain only 10% of what they heard from an oral presentation, 35% from a visual presentation, and an overwhelming 65% from combination of a visual and oral presentation. Incorporating inspirational WingClips™ in your service will dramatically connect the themes of your message to the hearts and minds of your audience."

Free inspirational stories:

These inspiring Christian stories are ideal for short devotional talks, and as Bible lesson or sermon illustrations.

More free Christian stories.

As Christians, giving "lagniappe" grace  should be an action seen in our everyday lives as we strive to go over and beyond for the cause of Christ. Let's never stop short of being overly kind or giving or loving - always going the "little extra" for Christ.

Jesus certainly gave us more than a "little extra." He gave us what we didn't deserve - "GRACE - God's Riches At Christ's Expense."

We'd like to bring you a new little "lagniappe" every now and then. It may be an outstanding Christian website or free Christian software we've found, a Christian book recommendation, a special testimony or story, or just some good clean fun with Bible trivia, clean jokes, & Christian cartoons. All will be free Christian resources which can add to the variety in your world of Bible study and ministry.

We want to equip you as much as we can in finding joy and excitement in your Bible study time and as you share God's Word.

Also, if you know of any valuable Christian resources you use and believe they would be useful to others, please let us know!

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
