A 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.”
