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.

In remembrance, we’ve gathered 30 of her most inspiring quotes. Share your favorites to celebrate the life and legacy of a woman who made an incalculable impact on Christianity around the world.

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:

A Simple Way to Develop Application for Your Sermon

LogosPro_blog

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.

The Power of Words in a Digital Age

James 3There is great significance to words—not only what is said but how it’s said. We often choose to say something a certain way for emphasis, to direct the conversation, or to better communicate our point. We don’t overtly think about these devices, but they’re incredibly important if we want to fully understand what is being said. There is a deep connection between the feelings of the heart and the words of our mouth. Our innermost feelings often find a way to be vocalized, whether we mean it or not. The connection between the tongue and the heart is a major theme in the book of James. In this excerpt from High Definition Commentary: James, Steve Runge shows how James emphasizes the power of our words—and draws out the implications for our digitized world.

197 Reformed Commentaries for 75% Off!

Reformed Commentary BundleHow did you start building your theological library? If you’re like a lot of pastors, scholars, or seminary students, you put it together one piece at a time—book by book. You began a study on a book of the Bible, bought the most respected commentaries (if you could afford them), rolled up your sleeves, and got to work. Then when the next paper or sermon series rolled around, you did the same thing.

That method often leaves huge gaps in your library. Maybe you have five commentaries on Romans, and Galatians, but how’s your Minor-Prophets shelf looking? Remember that study you did on eschatology? You bought 10 commentaries on Revelation and Daniel. But what about the book of Numbers, or Deuteronomy?

Incorporate David Platt’s Sermons into Your Bible Study

David Platt Sermon ArchiveGod is passionate about missions. As an influential textbook on missiology boldly declares, “The clear affirmation of Scripture is that our God is a missionary God.” Not only has God sent his Son Jesus to be the savior of the world’s sins, he has also given believers the privilege to share this message with our friends and enemies, neighbors and strangers, those at home and those abroad. The Bible is clear that God’s blessing goes with us as we take the message of salvation to others: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” (Rom. 10:15)

David Platt has spent years teaching and preaching on God’s heart for the nations to hear the good news of the gospel. His runaway best seller, Radical, inspired readers to abandon the American dream and pour themselves out for God. In 2014, sensing the call to equip the next generation of missionaries, Platt became the president of one of the largest missions organizations in the world, the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Platt’s desire to teach the gospel, “making disciples, sharing, showing, and teaching God’s Word in everyday life,” has led to a prolific preaching ministry at the Church at Brook Hills in Alabama.

Now, for the first time, hundreds of Platt’s sermons are available for pre-order on Logos.com!
