On Sunday, Elisabeth Elliot passed away. She was a living testimony to the power of God’s grace, forgiveness, and unconditional love. As a young missionary, she traveled to Ecuador where she soon married fellow missionary Jim Elliot. Sensing the call to share the gospel with an unreached people group, Jim and four other missionaries made contact with the Aucas, a tribe living in the Ecuadorian jungles. Due to a tragic misunderstanding, all five were speared to death. Elisabeth and the other widows remained in Ecuador where they continued the work of their husbands, sharing the gospel with the very people who were involved in their husbands’ murders. The martyrdom of these men, and the remarkable story of the village’s transformation, led to a an influx of young Christians entering missionary service in the middle of the twentieth century. Elisabeth went on to write numerous influential books on her husband’s life, her own ministry, and Christian living. She died at the age of 88.

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.
With all the power of Logos, sometimes we may forget Logos also does the simple things, as evidenced by a recent question from a Logos user:
I know Logos does many things, but I just want to look up the Hebrew or Greek word, behind an English word in my Bible in my favorite dictionary just like I did with print books. What’s the simplest way to accomplish this task?
There are several ways to achieve his goal, but he wanted simple so here’s what I told him:
How did the earliest Christians understand their relationship with the Old Testament? How did Christ’s first followers function as a body, even as opposing factions arose? And how did the early church first spread the good news of Jesus Christ to pagans and Jews alike?
Multitasking—it’s something we do every single day.
At work, you might type an email while talking on the phone. At home, you might throw the tennis ball to the dog while barbecuing dinner for your family. At the gym, you might listen to music while running or lifting weights.
Let’s be honest: sermon prep is long, difficult work. When preparing a sermon or lesson, I would typically spend 95% of my time studying the meaning of a passage and the significance of the surrounding context. I’d consult commentaries, track down key terms, and perform in-depth word studies. But even after hours of grueling work, one of the most important steps still remained: application.
The hard task of exegesis often left me with little time to demonstrate practical ways the insights I uncovered connected to people’s lives. But with Logos I can discover how master preachers handled a particular text—and how they applied its message to the lives of their hearers.
In this video, one of our Logos Pros shows you how to incorporate both modern and classic sermons into your Bible study and sermon prep, using one of our most popular sermon collections: the John MacArthur Sermon Archive.
