Spurgeon on Being Crucified with Christ

SpurgeonA friend asked me recently about what I was doing at work, and I told him a bit about compiling the Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians. He was incredulous. He asked, “You get to read Spurgeon all day?”

I don’t actually get to read Spurgeon all day, but I have been spending a lot of time with the Prince of Preachers lately. It has been a pleasure to comb through his writings on Galatians, find the best nuggets of wisdom, and put them in a format that’s accessible to today’s readers.

You can read more about this resource in my earlier post, and you can pre-order it today while it’s still at a discounted price. In the meantime, here are some of Spurgeon’s thoughts on one of the most popular verses in the book—Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”

Crucified with Christ:

“When a man finds and knows himself to be linked with Christ, his life is altogether a new life. Crucified, then dead. Crucified, then the old life is put away. Whatever life a crucified man has must be new life. Whatever you have of life was not given you till you came into union with Christ. It is a new thing—as new as though you had been actually dead and rotted in the tomb and then had started up at the sound of the trumpet to live again.”

Logos 5: Use “Send Hyperlinks Here” for Commentaries

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

Recently, while reading Marvin Vincent’s Word Studies in the New Testament, I used a minor Logos feature to enhance my commentary work.

I was reading Vincent’s comments on Galatians 2:20, in which he references numerous Bible verses. When I clicked a blue cross-reference, my preferred Bible jumped there.  But I really wanted his commentary to look up the references, so I could read his additional thoughts on the same subject.

So here’s how to accomplish just that:

  • Type Word Studies in the Command box (A).
  • In the dropdown list, click Open Word Studies in the New Testament (B). (You can do this with any resource containing Bible cross-references.)
